Lecture Highlights
There was a legend made about Vrubel during his lifetime. His life seemed to be more of a fairy tale than a regular one. He was a creator of fantastic and unearthly images, whose mysterious and strange works were received ambiguously by the contemporaries. They talked about him in the newspapers with malice and harsh criticism.

For Benoit, the main interpreter of the artist, Vrubel "was a Demon himself, a beautiful fallen angel, for whom the world was an endless joy and an endless torment and the human society was both brotherly close and hopelessly far away." Legends and stories were told about Vrubel during his lifetime as well as after his death.

A genius artist, a messenger of “other worlds” with a spiritually complex, extraordinary inner world, he possessed an exceptional talent for creating myths and fairy tales on canvas, in sculpture, in the theatre and even in church. How did he do it? We will discuss at the lecture.
How did love for a woman help him create his artworks and almost cost him his life?
What was so complex in the character of Vroubel, that he was so difficult to work and be friends with?
Why did the painter have a fight with Chaliapin?
How did the artist search for the image of the demon?
What was the reason of him becoming an artist instead of a lawyer?

Who is the lecturer?
My path in art began with classical music, from where I came to art history.

I am convinced that if you do something, you need to do it with the fire inside. Then you begin to see it in the eyes of those who are next to you. I love to use a creative, lively approach to anything that I do. I write articles about art and sometimes poetry.

I appreciate personal communication, the best addition to which is a cup of fresh coffee.

For me, art is a way to talk about what is important, about meaning, about the love that moves the Sun and the stars.
