VOYAGE

The Tretyakov Gallery is preparing a large-scale monographic exhibition of Ivan Aivazovsky (1817-1900), one of the best-known and most popular painters in Russia. His art includes the themes that touched many generations of artists: the attempts to depict infinite, limitless spaces, the desire to capture the ever-changing nature in a given moment of time.

From the large number of works created by Aivazovsky (based on his own estimate, approximately 6000), the exhibition presents about 100 paintings and 50 graphic works. The curators’ selection will allow the viewers to see the best examples of Aivazovsky paintings: seascapes, battle scenes, graphics works. The exhibition will display simultaneously four most significant paintings of the artist: “The Rainbow” (1873), “The Black Sea” (1881, both from Tretyakov Gallery), “The Ninth Wave” (1850), “The Wave” (1889, both from State Russian Museum). For the first time, the art lovers will see the large format painting “On the shores of the Caucasus” (1885, Tretyakov Gallery) that has never been on show before. The documentary section will introduce Aivazovsky as a patron of arts, the first honorary citizen of Theodosia. The exhibition will also include models of ships, compasses, globes, telescopes.

Diary



On evelinakhromtchenko.com we consider the most beautiful jewelry and understand the trends in High Jewelry.

Absolutely magically jewelers from the three houses of Boucheron, Chaumet, Chanel found the inspiration in the ear of wheat, symbol of plenty, harvest and full granaries. One wonders why such a symbol of wealth simultaneously selected by the jewelers. Maybe it’s the fact that now we look for happiness in simple joys and poetry in the details. Even though they are made of diamonds.

Floral motifs — classic of the genre. Paradise flowers bloomed at Boucheron, Chaumet and many others.

Architecture is also a favorite subject of fine jewelry. De Beers inspired by London, one of Boucheron necklace reflects chamber the Palais Royal, Victoire de Castellane examined all the nooks and crannies of Versailles for Dior new collection.

Echoes of fashion trend — 90-ies — everyone has their own, but even in High Jewelry the trend impact significantly. Antique coins turned into jewelry is the well — known handwriting of Roman jewellers at Bulgari. Cropped necklace by Boucheron is another nod in the direction of the general mood. The idea is to release a jewelry collection was also born in the 90’ies, when Jewelry Houses began in the neighborhood of the couture collections producing their jewelry to surprise and to deceive customers on a systematic basis.

Ask Evelina

Q“What style girls in capital choose a dress for the prom?”, — Lisa Stavtseva, Tula


A Recommendations for choosing the prom dress Evelina Khromtchenko gave during the live broadcast #VKlive for social network Vkontakte:

Evelina Khromtchenko:

“Prom is not a holiday of disobedience, a celebration of innocence. That’s what you should show. There will be just no more chance, you know?”

“First, now you just don’t understand in what situation you find yourself, when you get to the prom. Suddenly all your classmates, even this scary Mary from the last row will will suddenly appear to be beautiful. Just like awful ducklings turn into beautiful swans. It will happen outside of your management – you will not be able to visualize how they will look, and how, most importantly, you will look on their background. So this strange idea to go in jeans, a trendy black jacket, t-shirt, hat and converse (I just quote one girl who sent me this question) is to be forgotten immediately. In your life, there are several moments when a woman needs to feel completely confident and absolutely classic. Prom refers to such moments”.

“Too many girls confuse this event with the wedding. They think, “Oh, I need a long white dress. I’m going to get it in bridal shop and rent this flower bed on the curtains”. This is a big misconception. So it is not necessary to do. Because for those who understand, there is a difference between a wedding dress and dresses for prom. And, moreover, you will soon find yourserlf in the camp of those who understands it very well.

“Even if the dress is rented, it should always be cut according the height of the heels. Everything you see on the photos of celebrities on the red carpet… you just don’t have to repeat. Dress should not be based around you – the dress must fit your height. Because you’re not Natalie Portman, you will not be able to cope with it. You will definitely fall in the most embarrassing moment with a diploma and triumph when come down from the stage into the hall. It is also important the boys to support the girls.”
