American Wild West exhibition opens in St. Petersburg
04.21.2003 11:47

American Wild West exhibition The exhibition 'Artists from the American West 1830-1940' opens on Friday in the Marble Palace of the State Russian Museum. Over the course of a century the image 'American Wild West' changed for the representatives of American culture - from the land, mysteries, wealth and conquest, from the discovery and loss of the romantic American eagle, which is still a symbol of the government. The exhibition allows visitors to view the transformation of this idea through the works of artists, many of who left Europe for America, and other artists became the first descendents of European immigrants.

The exhibit consists of about 70 paintings, covering more than 100 years of history of American painting. Within the halls of the Marble Palace, one can see Native American Indians (George Catlin and His Indian Gallery, Portraits of Tribal Chiefs of Charles King), trade of fur skins in the Rocky Mountains of Alfred Jacob Miller, landscapes of Thomas Hill and Thomas Worthington Wettredge, and flora, fauna, and common drawings of the American West.

The displays are on loan to the Russian museum by a number of American museums including the Joslin Art Museum, Stark Art Museum, Gilchrist Art Museum, Houston Applied Arts Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Crocker Art Museum, Los Angeles Area Arts Museum, and the Santa Fe Art Fund.

The exhibition runs until the middle of May.
