The paintings of beloved Moscow artist, Victor Razgulin, will grace the walls of Artist's Proof Gallery in Georgetown this summer. In collaboration with Galerie Blue Square, Dianne Beal will serve as curator for the exhibition.
Also known to his collectors as the Russian Matisse, Razgulin’s portraits created in intimate interior settings reflect contemporary expressions of a traditional style that typify elegance and modernity. Razgulin’s art poetically floats from the most intimate of spaces of his familial home to the beautiful Russian landscapes of Pereslavl and Crimean coastlines along the Black Sea. The artist is among a select group of Russian artists who are in global demand in a market that has become exceptionally vibrant over recent years, and this particular market continues to gain strength, as evidenced by auction sales. Major players, Sotheby’s and Christie’s hosted their annual Russian Art evening auctions earlier this week with record-breaking results, totaling over 30 million USD and 40 million USD, respectively.
Russian art maintains a solid foothold in the art world, reflecting not only artistic quality and creativity, but also the rich cultural history that permeates the art from this region.
