In the three halls of the Benois Building (thematically designated as War, Victory and Memory), you can see the most significant works of Soviet art, as well as works by modern authors dedicated to this terrible and at the same time heroic era. The exhibition is based on the idea of preserving the memory of the war — historical, family, personal.
Among the most famous names presented at the exhibition are front-line soldiers E. Moiseenko and B. Nemensky, B. Ugarov and A. Romanychev, classics of Soviet art - Kukryniksy, A. Laktionov, D. Nalbandian, A. Mylnikov, A. Plastov, G. Korzhev, P. Ossovsky, M. Anikushin, M. Manizer, M. Pereyaslavets and other artists for whom the military theme has become one of the most important in their work. Seeing off, the Siege of Leningrad, defenders of the Fatherland, mothers, wives, widows who did not wait for their husbands, the long-awaited Victory and the unhealed pain of memories. Each of the authors searched and found his way to a true story about this cruel ordeal that fell to our grandfathers and great-grandfathers.
