Continuing the tradition of large retrospectives of important Russian painters, the Tretyakov Gallery launched a huge retrospective of Vasily Polenov’s works in the fall of 2019. Polenov was a prominent Russian painter of the second half of the 19th–early 20th century, a member of the “Wanderers” (Peredvizhniki) group of realist painters. He is best known for his landscapes and the series of historical paintings depicting the life of Jesus Christ. The exhibition, which will run until February 2020, spans Polenov’s whole life and features over 150 works from sixteen Russian museums and private collections.
