Drawings and Watercolours by the Wanderers

The exhibition acquaints viewers with the artwork of the so-called wanderers, or peredvizhniki in Russian. Being the mainstay of the late 19th-century Russian realism school, their paintings exhibit deep psychologism and accuracy in depicting the universal and particular traits of the artists’ generation. Among the representatives are Ilya Repin, Viktor Vasnetsov, Ivan Shishkin, Ivan Kramskoi, and many others, whose works are displayed at Russia’s major museums (see more here and here).
