Within the art fair "Fifty years of Soviet art," which will be held from 10 to 18 December at the Central House of Artists, Gallery "The Ark" will present the exhibition of graphic works by the artist Abinadab Kanevsky (1898 - 1976).

Many generations of our citizens have grown on the books, illustrated by this artist. His drawings for "The Golden Key, or the Adventures of Pinocchio" by Alexei Tolstoy, who saw the light at the end of the forties and has since been reprinted many times, organically connected with the text book. In those same years Kanevsky made illustrations for "Moidodyr" and "Cockroach" Kornei Chukovsky, later illustrated the "Cat House" and "Here's a stray" Samuel Marshak, books, Agnes Barto and Sergei Mikhalkov, "Satire" Vladimra Mayakovsky, "Merry Family "and" Victor Maleev at school and at home, "Nikolai Nosov...

These things are very open to the unexpected identity of a famous artist, finding in it the master of lyrical landscape and talented portraitist. It was they who constitute the current exhibit on the stand, "the Ark".
