Travelling along the Seas


Earlier this year the art collection of the Museum of the World Ocean was enlarged by works of People's Artist of the Russian Federation, Gennadii Sotskov (1925 – 2011). His widow Svetlana Sotskova handed 46 pictures over to the museum. A part of them became a core of the personal exhibition timed by the 95 th anniversary of the artist. All the canvases are united by one topic – Russia’s seas. Art works shape into a sort of a journey – a sea voyage encouraging you to enjoy the beauty of unique landscapes.

The exhibition featuring works in traditional Russian realistic landscape technique was launched at the Maritime Exhibition Centre (Svetlogorsk) on February 29. A special value of the canvases lies in the fact that being compiled together, they present a unique story about Russia’s seas: marine landscapes, shoreline panoramas, far-away frontier posts and meteorological stations. 

Gennadii Sotskov is probably the only Russian artist who managed to create so diverse “marine” pictures. And now citizens and guests of the region can see this unique collection.
