Happy New Year!

Dear friends!

Congratulations on the upcoming year 2024 – the year of the 180th anniversary of Vasily Dmitrievich Polenov! We are happy and proud that almost a century after his death, the memory about artist is alive, and his educational work is going on.

Our legendary House, our homestead has survived many historical trials, and it has only strengthened in its cultural significance. Therefore, we are looking to the future with hope, having strong back in the traditions of the great artist, we care of his spirit and presence.

During last year there was a lot of talks about mentoring in our country. And, of course, it was logical to recall Polenov’s legacy, who brought up a whole galaxy of outstanding Russian painters. Our large-scale project “Vasily Polenov. Teacher and Students” (supported by Rostelecom) for involved students of art schools in the area from the Far East to Karelia to study the history of Russian painting! This is our tribute to the artist and creator for his anniversary!

We are looking forward to the coming year with plans to have retrospective exhibition of V.D. Polenov in Samara Art Museum and many other amazing cultural events related to the work and fate of our dear Vasily Dmitrievich!
