On May 9, 2019, the gallery presented an exhibition of painting works by Nikolaj Kormashov titled
Art STAC is pleased to present
Nikolai Kormashov (1929-2012), one of the leading figures of the 1960s generation of painters in Estonia. Nikolai Kormashov belongs to the so-called “Sixties Generation” in Estonia art, whose task it became to break free of the dogma of Stalinist Socialist Realism.
However for Kormashov, thematic paintings were not just commissioned art. And in the middle of the decade, the artist created his most powerful and distinctive works in this genre. Born in Russia’s Vladimir oblast, Nikolai Kormashov graduated from the Ivanovo Art School in 1951 and thereafter came to study at the State Art Institute of the Estonian S.S.R. Unlike many other art students who came to study in Tallinn from the various regions of the Soviet Union, he settled in Estonia and became one of the most respected painters of the 1960s.
Vernissage on 25 April at 7 p.m. only by invitation.
