A Breath of Air: Exhibitions, Saint-Petersburg

Nikita Makarov is the youngest member of the Russian Academy of Fine Arts in all its history.

Despite his age, he loves small-scale sculpture, and the masters of the old school are kindred spirits to him. Makarov is inspired by the urban and architectural landscapes of Italy and France, and puts them on canvas in the smallest details using dots and dashes of tempera. This technique, so meticulous and difficult to implement, gives extraordinary lightness and freshness to the completed works. See the artwork of the young academic at a personal exhibition, ‘The Geography of the Air,’ in the Muravyov-Apostol family museum house until December 12.
