|About a Neo-Impressionist – solo exhibition - Art Innsbruck|
||The Russian media concern M.Video, which enabled a highly attended special show for last year‘s ART Innsbruck about classical painting in contemporary Russia, will once again appear as an exhibition sponsor for the 17th ART Innsbruck 2013 from February 21st to 24th. This year‘s special exhibition will be dedicated to the well-known Moscow Painter Vladimir Valentsov, who|
is classified to be an important representative of the Russian Neo-Impressionism.
Even the presidential administration of the Russian Federation had twice a special honor: Vladimir Valentsov‘s painting were already exhibited in the Kremlin in 2003 and most recently in 2009 under president Dmitri Medwedew. Vladimir Valentsov, who is presented by the Russian media concern M.Video at this year‘s art fair of Innsbruck, is as an artist considered to be a role model for the new Russia. Thereby was Valentsov, who was born in 1950 in Moscow, in the 1990s especially present in France, Spain and Italy. In 1991 he already had a solo exhibition in the France-Russia-House of the well-known art collector Rene Gera in Berre-les-Alpes, not far from Nice. This was followed by exhibitions for example in Marseilles, Paris, Santander, Santoña, Logroño (Rioja). According to that, the works by Valentsov have found entrance in many private collections of Russian and European art. Also quite a few of his paintings were bought from Spanish Museums.
In the last years Valentsov has been again artistically active in his home country Russia, although nearly every painting seems to carry the light of the southern sun. Simply this extraordinary charisma of his paintings has earned him among collectors the attribute of being a Russian Neo- Impressionist. The Russian Journalist Vera Dmitrieva, who wrote in 2009 about his exhibition in the Kremlin, sparingly rubbed her eyes when she faced his sun-drenched landscape paintings. She also asked herself rightly, when and where there may be so much sun in Moscow. In spring - the artist answered unaffected. So Dmitrieva came to her own conclusion, that it must be the task and vocation of this artist to illuminate the colors according to their nature, that also we can see them in a brighter light.
Selected landscape paintings, still lifes and portraits by the Russian Neo-Impressionist will be presented for the first time in Austria with Vladimir Valentsov‘s special exhibition at the ART Innsbruck 2013 from February 21st to 24th.
International Fine Arts from the 20th and 21st century – focus after 1960 – is presented annually in spring at the ART Innsbruck. 70 exhibitors – gallery owners and art dealers from 10 nations – are showing the works of over 700 artists.
