Paul Gauguin and the Russian Avantgarde
Old Announcement

Palazzo dei Diamanti
Corso Ercole I d'Este 21 - Ferrara (Italy)
April 1 - July 2, 1995

NEW! With the opening of the show, the museum opened an official World Wide Web site!

This is the announcement of an exhibition that was held in Ferrara, Palazzo dei Diamanti (Diamond Palace) from April 1 to July 2, 1995. It has been opened on March 31, 1995 by the Italian President Luigi Scalfaro, and opened to the public the day after.

The exhibition is edited by Marina Bessonova (Puskin Museum of Fine Arts) and Albert Kostenevich (State Ermitage). The goal of the show is twofold: the knowledge of the most important nucleus of Gauguin works, and the study of the strong influence of the Gauguin's primitivism on the work by Larionov, Goncharova, Petrov-Vodkin, Kandinskij and others (their works will be shown at the exhibition).
This is the very first time a so huge collection of Gauguin works leave Russia. The difficulty resides in the fragility of the maestro works, who painted on sacking canvas, the only available in Tahiti.
