The title of this exhibition - Russian Paris - would appear to concentrate attention on the contributions of artists of Russian origin to the Ecole de Paris. This theme is, in fact, much broader, addressing the concept of a single space of culture and art. Uprooted from their native lands, emigre artists introduced the traditions of their former homelands into their new lands of abode, simultaneously aspiring to enter the context of another culture.
Russian artists enjoyed various fates in France. Some now enjoy the same fame as the leading French masters. Others were less successful, remaining within the ranks of the Russian emigres. Whatever the case, the majority of artists enjoyed the same fate in their former homeland of Russia, where they were expunged from the history books. Their names are only now being rediscovered and reclaimed for Russian culture.
This exhibition is an important stage in the process. Russian viewers and art lovers from other countries are often surprised to note that world-famous artists once lived and worked in Russia. This inevitably evokes questions about what remained in their oeuvres from their Russian periods and what came from their French periods. Many exciting investigations still lie ahead of us, following this large-scale showing of the works of the artists of "Russian Paris".
