The first section of the exhibition is dedicated to students of the legendary Moscow secondary art school for gifted children, which was opened in 1939. The school brought together talented students from all over the country. The exposition includes the works of students: Geliy Korzhev, Viktor Ivanov, Lucian Shitov, Oleg Savostyuk and others. They painted city streets, as well as portraits of civilians and soldiers.

The second section of the exhibition presents a modern view of the military events of those who did not participate in the war themselves, but for whom it became family and global history. Actors of Dmitry Brusnikin’s workshop Kirill Odoevsky, Andrey Gordin and Eva Milgram will read poems about the Great Patriotic War.

The center of the exposition are three paintings by the Soviet and Russian artist, the outstanding master of the “severe style” Igor Obrosov: Moscow. Seeing off the Echelons (2001), dedicated to people escorting soldiers to the front on the platform, work 1941. Evacuation (2001), which depicts people who moved from their home to an unknown village during the war and evacuation, and Frontiers outside Moscow (2001), the painting is dedicated to the defence of the capital in 1941-1942.

The artist was a child when the war started, but memories of that time and understanding of what happened to the country and people were embodied in his drawings and large paintings. From the 1960s to the 2000s, he often returned to the military theme to create some of the most accurate and piercing statements about the war among the masters of his generation.
