Pictures by Goravsky, Bobrovsky and Ruszczyc returned to Belarus.
Belgazprombank JSC has returned works by Apollinary Goravsky, Grigory Bobrovsky and Ferdynand Ruszczyc to Belarus, expanding its corporate art collection. The acquisitions have been made as part of the Art-Belarus national historical-cultural project, aiming to bring works by Belarus-born artists back to their homeland.
Apollinary Goravsky made a significant contribution to the culture of Belarus and Russia in the second half of the 19th century. The National Art Museum already holds several dozen of his pieces. The bank notes that the castle landscape purchased reveals the master’s previously unknown romantic side.” Grigory Bobrovsky’s In Summer: A Windy Day is a wonderful acquisition, since Belarus holds no other work by the great artist, who was one of Chagall’s teachers.
Belarusian nature is shown in all its beauty in Landscape: Viliya, by Ferdynand Ruszczyc. Our country already boasts ownership of several of his works and this recent purchase by the bank is a worthy addition.
