Post-war Russian art in Russian museum

In the State Russian museum the exhibition " has opened; Post-war Russian art - 80 pictures from meeting of American collector Yury Trajsmana. Almost all visible names of informal Russian art 60 - 80 - h years, and also some actual figures of a modern domestic art scene are presented. And in the best part of a collection that Russian art which exists almost exclusively in foreign meetings is presented. That is art which in Russia there is no place to see.

Yury Trajsman was the Muscovite. Together with the father - the artist in the beginning 70 - h on workshops began to collect the modern art. The first purchases were small, at departure at customs they have interested nobody. Perhaps and fairly - any of the Moscow purchases on a present exhibition has not got. In America Trajsman was engaged in business, things began to buy larger. And at great artists. Now it has all main characters of Russian art all or nearly so: Ilya Kabakov, Eric Bulatov, Vladimir Jankilevsky, Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid, Alexander Kosolapov, Leonid Sokov and - independently - Vladimir Jakovlev, Anatoly Zverev. Things at everyone fundamental, the first row are presented.
indisputable things from the museum point of view and names automatically deduce a collection of Trajsmana on museum level. But nearby - the phenomena let not less well-known, but sending it is more to personal taste of the collector, than to vysterilizovannoj experts of history of art. Russian art emigration - first of all Ernest Neizvestnyj, Michael Shemjakin, Oscar Rabin. A narrativnaja line of domestic art - Tatyana Nazarenko, Vadim Ovchinnikov, Natalia Nesterov, Leonid Purygin, Elena Figurina. A photo - small, but a good selection: Simeon Fajbisovich, Frantsisko Infante, Rimma and Valery Gerloviny. The new art inheriting to the second Russian avant-guard : only Timur Novikov and Sergey Bugaev - Africa.
selection of things from 2000 products of a collection of Trajsmana was spent very carefully (critic Vitaly Patsjukov and artist Grigory Bruskin took part in it). Not a smaller role has played and razveska. Having mixed decades, without building hierarchy, having beaten predilections of the collector and an objective reality of art process, employees of Russian museum have offered the variant of history the second Russian avant-guard which else it is necessary to write. And without the collections similar to meeting of Yury Trajsmana, it will not be full.
