Every two months a new exhibition opens at the Yasnaya Polyana Gallery.

Now the “Unknown Mashkov” exhibition is on display at the gallery. Young schoolchildren are offered a multimedia visit to the world of the still life, a guided tour of the exhibition, and, of course, a game called “Group Drawing.”

Workshop at the Exhibition “The Unknown Mashkov”

P1020800November 10, 2014

Ilya Mashkov is one of the most painterly painters, and is also famous as an outstanding practitioner of drawing. His graphic heritage, based on color saturation, and on the variety of approaches and forms, is no less harmonious and organic than his painting.

The larger part of his works shown at the exhibition “The Unknown Mashkov” comprise graphic drawings, done in charcoal, graphite, and colored pencils, red chalk, sepia, and pastel.

As part of the exhibition “The Unknown Mashkov” the Yasnaya Polyana Gallery organized a workshop for students of middle and upper classes on “Drawing with Pastels,” at which children will learn the technique of working with pastels and will learn why it is possible not only to draw with pastels, but to paint with them, thereby creating a real painting.
