150 Modern Russian Painters Album Presentation
Text and photos Alevtina Kashitsina

On November 27th, a presentation of an album dedicated to the modern painters of Russia took place at Baltchug Kempinski Hotel. The album is the result of a joint effort by the Valentin Ryabovs Gallery, the Russian Culture Fund, STK Story-City, Mirax Group, Baltchug Kempinski, GK Capital and Interhous. The President of the Russian Culture Fund, Nikita Mikhalkov, said that the edition is another demonstration of the scope of the Russian graphics school and an example for those who are striving to discover new ways of depicting reality. According to Mr. van Daalen of the Balchug Kempinski, it is impossible to imagine the best museums collections without such masters as Malevich, Korovin or Feshin. But it should be noted that the present generation of artists have been educated with the works of the previous generations. But whereas the works of the Masters have already been appreciated all over the world, the existence of modern artists cannot be publicised without private initiatives. That is why Valentin Ryabov and his friends support of unknown artists is so welcome and important. We do not want to admire our painters works in foreign museums in the future and then have to buy back contemporary artists who are as great as Aivazovsky, Malevich, Repin and Faberge at incredible prices. We can save our future heritage today by immediate support here and now.
