"Museums of Russia"
The State Museum of Ceramics and the "Kuskovo 18th Century Country Estate" present a one-man show of B. Kalita, featuring artist's works from the Museum's funds and the private collection of the author, created over 1970-1990. Boris Kalita is a Russian leading contemporary porcelain artist.
While developing the traditions of Russian avant-garde of the 1920s-1930s, B. Kalita also creates new forms and shapes. His works made in 1970-1980 demonstrate eloquent plastic silhouettes decorated with laconic designs or by relief reminding forms typical for the Empire style. The artist prefers quiet landscapes of central Russia characterized by a lyrical, gentle style close to the watercolor technique. In the decor B. Kalita employs images of old Russian architectural monuments, fantastic birds, animals and flowers. B. Kalita has created over 100 works which have been displayed both in Russia and abroad. His best works belong to Russian museums and private collections in France, Czechia, Germany, USA and Chile.
