International cultural and educational project
BRITISH ENGRAVINGS, WATERCOLORS, PASTELS, PRINTS
The main part of exhibitions of the THEATRE – MUSIC – FINE ART project consists of collections of engravings, watercolors, pastels and other graphic works by famous artists of the XIX-XX centuries. The items are provided by British and Russian collectors, and fans of theatrical and musical art.
Engravings are based on the principle of transferring images from a metal matrix to another surface, most often paper or fabric. Traditional printmaking techniques include woodcut, etching, engraving, lithography and other techniques. In the etching technique, artists carve an image using acid on a metal plate. The plate can be made of iron, copper or zinc. The artists often used additional artistic materials: watercolor, pastel, sepia and other media during produce of engravings.
The best examples of graphic arts are very popular among collectors and always attract the attention of museum experts. Color and monochrome engravings, watercolors, pastels are included in the collections of many states, corporate and private museums. Among the collectors of graphic arts, there are many well-known public figures.
Museum specialists organized research of art objects of artists of the XIX - XX centuries participating in THEATRE-MUSIC-FINE ART exhibitions. Research was also aimed at identifying the unique qualities of graphic works: engravings, watercolors, pastels, prints. The research results were reflected in museum certificates and expert documents confirming the historical and cultural significance and artistic value of art objects.
