This exhibition, the first solo-exhibition of Alexander Volkov's
(1886-1957) work held outside of Russia and the CIS, will comprise more than 50 works from the artist’s important early period. Volkov, who was of Russian origin but lived in Uzbekistan all his life, was lauded for his depictions of Central Asia. His paintings uniquely combine cutting-edge Western painterly styles with the inspiration he drew from traditional Central Asian craftsmanship. During his lifetime Volkov’s art was described as one of the most outstanding phenomenons in Russian art; his vibrant works continue to fascinate us today. We are grateful to Oracle Capital Group
for their kind and generous sponsorship, without which this exhibition would not have been possible.
