Description

The Museum of Russian Art is pleased to invite you join us in celebrating the opening of:

The Body in Soviet Art

Be the first to view this new exhibition, drawn from the renowned Raymond and Susan Johnson collection of Russian 20th century paintings. The Body in Soviet Art examines the depictions of the human form in Soviet art, featuring more than fifty works created in the 1950s-1970s. Representations of the human body have varied over time and across cultures. Soviet art placed a unique emphasis on the working body as part of a Soviet collective.

Refreshments will be available for your enjoyment. We hope you can join us!
