Tatiana Mavrina. From sea to sea

From March 22 to June 4, In artibus Foundation presents an exhibition of graphic art by Tatiana Mavrina titled “From Sea to Sea”. The exhibition features over 150 works of the artist from ten Moscow collections.

The exhibition is dedicated to one of the main themes in Mavrina’s work – views of ancient Russian cities, rural landscapes, and sketches of urban everyday life. The gouaches and watercolors collected “according to the geographical principle” cover practically all stages of Mavrina’s long creative life. From rare sheets from the late 1920s-1930s, which were exhibited by the “13” group, of which the artist was a member at that time, and valuable military albums collected by Moscow collectors, to numerous works created in the 1960s-1980s following travels along the Volga, the Golden Ring, and the Moscow region.

“We all love to travel now,” wrote Mavrina. “Apparently, the example of a merchant from Tver Afanasy Nikitin, who traveled beyond three seas back in the 17th century, is to our liking. His shadow even remained in Russian fairy tales. From a young age, I dreamed of being a land traveler – to travel, if not beyond three seas, then at least from sea to sea.”

Today, as travel within the country becomes the main direction of national tourism, our exhibition allows not only to expand the understanding of Mavrina’s work but also to rediscover the charm of Moscow streets and surrounding landscapes familiar from childhood, the beauty of ancient cities in central Russia, and the unpretentious charm of provincial everyday life, to look through the eyes of the artist how life and the appearance of these places changed over the years.

The exhibition architect is Konstantin Larin.
