Celebrating famous artists’ legacy
Rumyantsev-Paskevich Palace hosts artistic-educational project devoted to fine art masters from Gomel Region and surrounding area
The Native Land Forever Adored presents works by talented painters from the Gomel Region, depicting their beloved homeland. Among them are paintings by People’s Artist of the BSSR Vitaly Tsvirko, People’s Artist of the RSFSR Georgy Nissky, and People’s Artist of Belarus Gavriil Vashchenko (donated recently to the museum by his family).
Bright canvases by Yelena Mashkovtseva-Samoilenko, Akim Shevchenko, Victor Kazachenko, Dmitry Aleinik and Vladimir Rykalin depict Belarusian fields, forests, rivers, and city and village landscapes with great love. Each work is accompanied by the artist’s biography, tales of their artistic path and their participation in the region’s public life.
“All these painters are dead but their touching landscapes continue to show us the times in which they worked and lived. They shed light on the Gomel Region’s talented artists,” stresses Palace Museum Director Oksana Toropova.
