Exhibition "Art in War, War in Art" will be opened in Bratislava

On May 6, 2021, on the eve of the 80thanniversary of the outbreak of World War II, the Aircraft Gallery of the European Foundation of Slavic Literature and Culture will host the opening of the “Art in War, War in Art” exhibition.

The exhibition will feature 97 graphic and pictorial works by masters of the academic Soviet school of fine arts, drawings of Japanese and German prisoners of war from the stock collection of the Yelabuga State Historical, Architectural and Art Museum-Reserve (Russia,Republic of Tatarstan, Yelabuga).

The artists Alexey Glandin, Yuri Neprintsev and Viktor Slyshchenko, whose works will be exhibited at the exhibition, were eye witnesses and participants in the events of the Great Patriotic War, and therefore the plots of their works are sincere and reliable. These are genuine, emotional documents of a tragic era, evidence of the price at which the people got the Victory. These are living stories about stolen childhood, about losses and about life in spite of everything.

The works presented at the exhibition will undoubtedly satisfy the most demanding needs of graphic art lovers; those who are seriously interested in Russian history.
