The exhibition has been organised by the Belarusian Embassy to Germany, in co-operation with Alexey Kuzmich’s son, to mark International Women’s Day. Continuing through early April, it includes more than 30 works from various decades, all connected by the theme of the Madonna as an icon of feminine beauty, maternity and spirituality.

The artist’s son, Alexey Kuzmich, presented a book of memoirs on his father, Alexey Kuzmich: The Creator of Elevated Madonnas.
