Салон русской книги08.02.2016
In Paris, at the City Hall of the 5th district, there took place the Days of Russian books (journeesdulivrerusse.fr). The theme of this year was «Russian Province», and it was quite natural that the «Polenovo» museum was one the main participants at the fair. We presented the exhibition «Faces of Russia» which had already toured the main capitals cities of the world. We decorated the main wedding hall with reproductions of graphic works by Maria Polenova – mother of Vassily Polenov. In a more intimate, more informal way, the international projects of the museum were presented by Natalia Polenova, the director of POLENOVO, who spoke about the events held by the museum in different countries, showed our last publications and presented the film «The Gospel Circle of Vassily Polenov». After having watched the film, the audience had the opportunity to address their questions to Natalia Polenova as well as to Tatiana Mojenok, doctor of art history and the author of the book «Vassily Polenov, Knight of beauty».
