The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts announces the winners of the contest “I am an artist, I see it this way”


The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts has selected the winners of the contest “I Am an Artist, I See It This Way” that was held from July 1 until September 1, 2017.

Elizaveta Komanova, 11, won the 6-13 age category with her drawing “A Meadow of Arts,” inspired by a number of paintings and sculptures. Aleksander Sorokin, 18, won the 14-20 age category with his drawing “Girl on a Magic Orb Gathering Apples,” themed on Pablo Picasso’s “Girl on the Ball.”

The contest “I Am an Artist, I See It This Way” was established in 2016 for the members of the “Observation Wheel” project.

This project is designed for children with disabilities and their typical peers so that they can explore their creative potential together and share their interests. Children with disabilities, their siblings and friends aged 5 to 20 can take part in the contest.

The topic for this year was “Children Draw Children”. The participants were asked to make an original interpretation of any famous artwork or make their own work themed on a famous painting. For inspiration we suggested paintings from the collection of the Pushkin Museum that depict children: “Girl on the Ball” by Pablo Picasso, “Madonna and Child” by Lucas Cranach the Elder, “The Infant Christ” by Francisco de Zurbaran and others.

As the jury evaluated the works, they did not have information about the contestant’s disabilities or lack thereof.

“Observation Wheel” is an inclusive social project that helps children and young people with disabilities, their family members and friends explore modern and classical art together.
