The visitors have a chance to see the other Gutov’s works (Girl. 2015; Old Man. 2015; Christ in The Storm by The Sea of Galilee; In The Right Corner There Is a Bust of Scared Apostle. 2009), inspired by the drawings of the greatest Dutch  artist.

Dmitry Gutov is a participant of numerous exhibitions and biennales. His works are exhibited at The State Tretyakov Gallery, The State Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art.


Dmitry Gutov works with photography, video, graphics, paintings, and he also creates large site-specific installations. Metallic spatial constructions, which mark theartist’s work, cannot be classified as one particular genre of art. This is not a piece of sculpture and not the object the way it is. One can see what depicted only from one direction, but due to the works’ of art voluminosity, the viewer may see them I many different ways, depending from the angle.

Due to his unique technique, Dmitry Gutov creates a graphic line  with fantastic interwoven  of metallic bars, that somehow gets out of the sheet of paper into the spacial dimension. This exhibition marks the Museum’s tradition of combining classical and contemporary art. The exposition demonstrates the old masters’ influence on contemporary ones.
