For the first time in 20 years Penza residents will see a picture brought from the Russian Museum that owns the largest collection of Russian art in the world. On November 22 the G. Myasnikov Museum of One Picture will host the premiere of the "Sadness of the Nature" project, as part of which the painting by Isaac Levitan "Silence" will be exhibited.
Already on November 16, a first-class work of a well-known and beloved Russian artist, which now belongs to the collection of one of the largest museums in Russia, will arrive in our city. The painting "Silence" was created by Levitan after his summer stay at the Bogorodskoye estate near the Podsolnechnoye station about 60 km from Moscow. This work was created in the late period of the artist's work.
As part of the "Sadness of the Nature" project, in the summer of 2021, an art documentary of the same name was shot with the Penza Drama Theatre and Penza Youth Theatre actors taking part. The filming took place in the Plyossky State Historical, Architectural and Art Museum-Reserve, the K. Savitsky Penza Regional Art Gallery and Penza Museum of Folk Art.
