Some 38 paintings by seascape painter Ivan Aivazovsky have been sent from the Feodosia gallery to the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, the so-called Crimean Minister of Culture Arina Novoselskaya said in her interview with RIA Novosti.
“Thirty-eight works by Aivazovsky with all obligations by security and insurance were sent on July 11 to the All-Russia exhibition at Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow,” Novoselskaya said.
The head of the Crimean Ministry of Culture promises that the pictures will be in Moscow for the entire exhibition cycle and brought back by the 200th anniversary of the artist.
The paintings are insured for more than $ 2 million.
The Tretyakov Gallery introduced the advanced booking for the exhibition of Ivan Aivazovsky on July 6 to avoid the queues.
Just a reminder: Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev was on his visit to the temporarily occupied Crimea on 22-24 May. In particular, he visited the Ivan Aivazovsky museum in Feodosia.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine expressed protest in connection with the uncoordinated with Ukrainian side visit of the Speaker of the Russian government to the sovereign territory of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders, including the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol.
