Impressionism Masterpieces for Power Industry Workers

The Impressionism Masterpieces Exhibition (from the collection of the Morozov brothers) has opened in Shaturskaya GRES Branch of Unipro PJSC. It is the fifth exhibition held as part of the Art for All educational project for Unipro employees. The event was timed to the 102nd anniversary of the power plant commissioning, and was conducted simultaneously with the main largest summer exhibition, the ‘blockbuster’ “Brother Ivan. Collections of Mikhail and Ivan Morozov” in the Pushkin State Museum of Art. The exhibition is dedicated to the influential Morozov family of industrialists – the eccentric experimenter Mikhail and the thoughtful scholar Ivan, their passion for art and the history of their collection.

The Pushkin State Museum of Art once again partnered up with Unipro to organize the event. The museum experts helped with the selection of 15 of the most prominent and recognizable impressionism masterpieces from the so-called “French” part of the collection featuring more than 200 pieces owned by the textile magnates. Reproductions of Monet, Renoir, Cezanne and Gaugin paintings are among them.

Sergey Bakurin, Director of Unipro PJSC Shaturskaya GRES Branch: “We promote and develop our Art for All project, and each new exhibition becomes more and more interesting and meaningful. Here our employees have a unique opportunity to explore the world of art. I hope that many of those who saw these reproductions would put the minds to going to the capital to see the originals.”

The goal of the Art for All project, existing since 2019, is to promote interest in fine arts and popularize cultural education not only at Unipro branches but also in the regions of company’s operation, as after each exhibition is finished, reproductions are handed over to the local cultural and educational institutions, where they continue to serve their purpose of enlightenment.
