Museum of Russian Lubok and Naive Artdedicates a new online exhibition “Heroes” to national heroes and defenders. The exhibitors will learn how the image of the brave defender has changed in different historical eras.
Strong, courageous and brave Russian knights have been depicted in popular prints at all times: fearless and courageous heroes have always evoked admiration and were an example to follow. Laconic, bright, characteristic images spoke of great battles and glorious victories, the strength of the people’s spirit and the remarkable wisdom of military leaders.
Ancient images tell about heroes, reflect folk epics and epics of Ancient Russia and boldly reshape foreign plots. Ilya Muromets, Bova Korolevich, Anika the warrior, Polkan the hero and other characters were depicted on the printed sheets. Fascinating legends have been preserved about each of them, which have been passed from mouth to mouth for centuries. In addition, the virtual exhibition includes popular prints about the exploits of the valiant Russian soldiers and officers of the 18th – 19th centuries.
