“Outlining the Contours with a Chisel…”. Depictions of Man on Coins, Gemstones, and Medals from Ancient Times to the Modern Age

06.07.2016 – 30.10.2016

Main Building

In collaboration with the Welfare Foundation for Social and Cultural Affairs  (KIKPE) and the Benaki Museum (Athens).

Within the framework of the cross-cultural year between Russia and Greece, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts will host an exhibition dedicated to the depiction of man in various numismatic and glyptic objects dating from Classical Antiquity up to the Modern era. Visitors will be able to trace the evolution of artistic styles through these objects, as well as through the interpretations of this subject-matter by masters of various periods. The display also aims to demonstrate a continuous cultural and chronological succession and a close connection between pictorial aspects and mythology, religion, history, literature, and philosophy. Along with miniature numismatic masterpieces from two renowned collections of highest quality – those of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and the KIKPE Foundation – the exhibition will feature ceramics dating from the Classical Antiquity, sculptures, archaeological findings from the Benaki museum (Athens) and from the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts.
