The exposition presents more than 70 paintings from the collection of the State Russian Museum and private collections, as well as canvases brought from the Finnish New Valaam Monastery.
The exhibition is dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the revival of the Valaam monastery. For the first time, a miraculously preserved valuable collection of paintings from the New Valaam Monastery from Finland and works from the Valaam Monastery from Russia were reunited for it for the first time.
Valaam - a unique natural monument and an inexhaustible source of the Orthodox faith - has long been known as an ideal place for creative improvement of artists. This can be confirmed by creative trips to the monastery of II. Shishkina, A.I. Kuindzhi, F.A. Vasiliev, M.K. Klodt, A.V. Ginet and other domestic painters.
