The one-man show of Boris Grigoryev who was the one of the most well-known Russian artists of the first half of the 20th century includes more than 150 paintings and graphic works from the museums and the private collections of Russia and foreign countries. For the first time in Russia the exhibition presents such a full and diverse collection of works by Boris Grigoryev who emigrated in 1919 and later worked in the Western Europe, Latin America countries and the United States of America.
Boris Grigoryev got the international fame for his paintings and graphic portraits of famous men of the Russian culture (among them are Maxim Gorky, Shalyapin, Meyerhold, Rahmaninov) marked by the shrewdness and depth of delineation. The special part of the exhibition presents the works from the Raseya series that were created in the revolutionary years and revealed the artist's complicated reflections on the fate of the Russian World. The unique drawings, created in the 1910's-20's give an opportunity to appreciate completeness and perfection of the form in the expressive and versatile images.
The exposition is supplemented with the multimedia film devoted to the basic works by Boris Grigoryev.

The exhibition is supported by OJSK NOVATEK and Heritage International Art-Gallery (Moscow)
