”Impressionism in Russia” at The Art Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden
The eminent Russian writer Fyodor Dostoevsky made the area around Baden-Baden (and Wiesbaden) a magnet that attracted not only Russian painters but the writer also had a big impact on German writers, artists including Friedrich Nietzsche, Franz Kafka and many others.
Baden-Baden became fashionable with Russian nobles during the 19th century and even the Czar himself visited frequently. The Russian author Dostoevsky, who made a fortune gambling in Wiesbaden, lost most of it in Baden-Baden, including the shirt of his back and his wife’s Anna Dostoevskaya wedding ring, then wrote several novels about his experience and misery.
An exhibition ”Impressionism in Russia: Dawn of the Avant-garde” is opening on 23rd March 2021 at Art Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden (Germany).
Explore the influence of Impressionism on Russian painters at the end of the 19th century and early 20th century.
