“Altar Sculpture and Art Fabrics of Belarus of the 17th – 19th Centuries” (from the funds of the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus)

Since December 5, 2012 in the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus the Exhibition “Altar Sculpture and Art Fabrics of Belarus of the 17th – 19th Centuries” (from the funds of the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus) takes place.

At the Exhibition about 30 works of a cult wooden sculpture of Baroque, when this art style thrived in Belarusian churches, will be presented. Collecting of sculpture and arts and crafts works in Western Belarus began even before the World War II by employees of the Belarusian Museum of Vilnius of Ivan Lutskevich. However the main part of the collection of a carved sculpture of the 17th – 19th centuries in the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus which has nowadays more than 500 samples, was taken out by scientific expeditions of the museum in the 1960-1980s from churches closed at that time, and rescued from inevitable destruction. The works were restored by the museum experts, examined and published. Some of them were exhibited at exhibitions in Minsk and Moscow, the part is shown for the first time.

The sculptures are executed by professional woodcarvers. At the same time works of national masters of the 2nd half of the 18th – the early of the 19th century, in which technique shortcomings are purged with identity of ingenuous characters, will be presented. Models of art weaving such as liturgical attires, including with Slutsk belt fragments are exhibited also.

The Exhibition will last till January 21, 2013.
