Mastery of pen in Tretyakov Gallery

M. Vorobyov. Self-portrait with family. 1828. Gallic ink, pen on paper. 21.8 x 16.9

The new exposition of Mastery of Pen in Tretyakov Gallery continues a series of temporary exhibitions devoted to mediums and materials of drawing of the 18th – early 20th century. The Museum gives spectators a unique opportunity to trace the history of pen and ink in a context of classical Russian art.

Public have an opportunity to see not only recognized masterpieces but also graphic sheets which were not shown for a long time or were not exposed at all and more often were not known even to experts. It is a question of sketches of pictures, architectural decoration and theatrically-decorative decisions, and also of draught sketches and “the marginal notes” which can be found in travelling albums and letters of artists.
