Coming Soon - A Russian Fairytale: The Art and Craft of Elena Polenova

18 November 2014 - 8 February 2015

This exhibition is the first major retrospective outside Russia to explore the career of the 19th-century Russian painter and designer, Elena Polenova. Showcasing Polenova’s production in a wide range of media, including paintings, furniture, ceramics and a selection of rarely seen works on paper, the exhibition demonstrates Polenova’s important role in the Russian craft revival of the 1880s.

Although Elena Polenova (1850 - 1898) and Mary Watts (1849 - 1938) never met, extraordinary parallels between the two artists’ creative lives have contributed to a partnership between the Polenov State Museum in Russia and Watts Gallery.

Self-Portrait, c.1853
