The name of Nikolai A. Andreyev (1873—1932) is generally associated with the production of Vladimir Lenin’s portraits.

The master’s pre-revolutionary creative period is much less known. The first large-scale exhibition of Nikolai Andreyev’s body of work will feature 80 pre-revolutionary pieces of his legacy from the Tretyakov Gallery’s collection, many of them being presented to the public for the first time.

The show will include works that were created when the artist was collaborating with the Art Theater, including sculptured portraits of actors and the 7-meter panel “The Olympus of the Art Theater”, as well as the distinctive phases of work on the monument to Nikolai Gogol erected in 1909 near the Arbat Gates which can be traced in the sketches and executed sculptured reliefs present in the exhibition.
