The Museum of Russian National Writing does not waste time in vain, its employees, being on forced isolation, sort archives and are actively engaged in creativity.
During quarantine, the founder of the museum, Yuri Ivanovich Arutsev, wrote a number of wonderful calligraphic works, many of which will occupy a worthy place in the museum’s exposition. According to the author, he is especially pleased with the birth of the series “Necklace of Russian Cities”, which will include the paintings of the series “Golden Ring of Russia”, created by him in 2013. The name of the series speaks for itself. In each picture, the name of the city, written in the style of “A.S. Pushkin” and decorated with a bright cascade of monograms, is woven into the graphic image of the central cathedral, which has become the main symbol of the city.
St. Petersburg, Veliky Novgorod, Arkhangelsk, Veliky Ustyug, Sevastopol, Smolensk, Bryansk, Ryazan, Voronezh, as well as Staraya Ladoga, the first capital of the ancient Russian state, each picture is a triumph of Russian ceremonial writing.
