The Grant Gallery is proud to present the recent paintings of a Russian artist, Nadezhda Alkseeva-Blinova. Considered a Russian impressionist, Nadezhda paints in loose brush stroke that is reminiscent of early French pointillism. The warm and harmonious tones of her color palette generate a romantic sentiment that is almost nostalgic of the bygone epoch of the 19th century. Especially exquisite is her capacity to capture light, making the painting glow from within the bounds of the canvas. Landscapes dominate her oeuvre as she depicts the Russian city scape and country side.
Nadezhda was born in Russia in 1958 and received Masters of Fine Arts from the Lenin’s Institute in Moscow. She is actively involved in the art world of Russia–she is a member of the Moscow Union of Artists, Union of Russian Artists and the International Federation of Artists. Nadezhda has participated in numerous exhibitions in Russia and abroad, and her works belong to public and private collections in Russia and Europe. Her artwork is featured in the catalogue of the International Art Fair of the 20th Century, Belgium Gent 1993. She lives and works in Moscow, Russia
