It is not the first exhibition of works by the Academician of the Russian Academy of Arts, People’s Artist of Russia Boris Messerer at Anna Akhmatova Museum in St. Petersburg. The previous one in 2018 was dedicated to the city of St. Petersburg and its spiritual landscapes in the period of white nights.
This solo exhibition is a mini-retrospective of the artist’s paintings and graphic works including his famous Ballet Dancers cycle, as well well-known still-lives with jugs, kerosene lamps, metal instruments, seashells and other objects. Visitors will also see a new series of non-objective canvases with geometric shapes in the forms of circles, semi-circles, intersecting lines produced in a delicate color scheme.
