An exhibition has opened in the Polenovskaya cottage of the Abramtsevo Museum-Reserve“Nine Group”dedicated to the 90th birthday of Nikolai Ivanovich Andronov.
The exhibition presents the works of Nine participants from the collections of the Abramtsevo Museum-Reserve, the New Jerusalem Museum, the IN ARTIBUS Foundation and private collections.
The Nine Group (Nine) is a fraction of young reformers formed within the Moscow Artists Union (Moscow Union of Artists) in the late 1950s. Artists who were keen on the French school of painting, contrary to the general line in the fine arts adopted in those years, adapted Cezannism, following the path of the masters of the Jack of Diamonds society. Affirming the diversity of creative individuals, the artist’s right to solve exclusively professional painting problems, to search for new forms to express his time, they, in fact, determined a new vector of realistic painting in Russian art of the second half of the 20th century.
