Sculptor Nikolay Andreev


85,00 € tax incl.

Nikolay Andreyev (1873 – 1931), the author of the monument to N.V. Gogol on Nikitsky Boulevard, twice became the victim of political and historical situation in Russia. In the Soviet times the sculptor’s name was mainly associated with the cycle of sculptures and graphic portraits of V.I. Lenin. Without any doubt it guaranteed Andreyev fame, honour and participation in numerous exhibitions where works of art connected with work in the Kremlin were mainly exhibited. However there was no place for sculptures created before 1917. After the perestroika period Andreyev once again became the victim of political conjuncture: he was not talked about because of his reputation of «Soviet artist with ingrained ideology», with was too strong. Andreyev’s pre-revolutionary works of art were beyond understanding of both art critics and audience. The last big exhibition was organized to mark the 100th anniversary of the sculptor and was held at the State Tretyakov Gallery in 1973/1974.

Both exposition and album include sections, which reflect the key trends of the sculptor’s works of art from late 19th century to 1917.
