A Walk with Van Gogh
This summer, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts organized
an open-air, open-to-all exhibition, using the
walls of buildings in the center of Moscow as the gallery.
Since May, art fans have been treated to 50 paintings by
European masters, from Botticelli to Monet, reproduced
on the streets of Moscow as part of the museum’s Art
Tour project. The framed copies of the masterpieces are
of excellent quality and treated to make them impervious
to inclement weather, though not to kidnapping:
It seems a romantic fan walked away with Renoir’s Girl
in Black, which had been displayed on the iron fence
outside Moscow State University’s journalism department
on Mokhovaya Street. The exhibition continues
through October 18. For more information, visit www.
