BELGRADE, May 12 – RIA Novosti. The exhibition “The Shining of Russian Artists”, featuring paintings from the family collection of Serbian collector Vladimir Pesic, opened Thursday at the Russian Science and Culture Center “Russian House” in Belgrade, RIA Novosti correspondent reported.

The exhibition presents dozens of works from the Pesic family’s collection since the beginning of the 20th century. These are paintings by Russian and foreign authors, applied art, icons and works made of ivory. Authors include Nikolai Kuznetsov, Ippolit Maykovsky, Stepan Kolesnikov, Petr Sokolov, Nikolai Kharitonov, Konstantin Kuznetsov, Alexander Lazhechnikov, Vladimir Zelinsky, and Nikolai Krivoshein. The exhibition took place for the first time in January in the city of Vršac in northeastern Serbia. The opening in Belgrade on Thursday was attended by Yevgeny Baranov, head of the Rossotrudnichestvo office, Slavenko Terzic, Serbia’s former ambassador to the Russian Federation, and many visitors.

Addressing the audience, Baranov said: “Due to the situation in Europe, it seems that Serbia remained the only country where freedom of art, freedom of mind and conscience, freedom of creativity was preserved, and I hope it will continue in the future.” .

The owner of the collection, Dusan Pesic’s father, was a correspondent for the newspaper Politics in the Soviet Union and later in Russia. His son lived with him in Moscow from 1983 to 1997, where he graduated from high school and the Institute of Foreign Languages. Vladimir Pesic bought his first painting at a Moscow second-hand store in 1989, but his family began collecting art from his great-grandfather, a native of Vrsac.

Vladimir Pesic has participated in many prestigious antique halls and exhibitions in Europe and Russia, including the 46th Russian Antique Hall in Gostiny Dvor in April 2021. Russia and CIS countries are members of the International Confederation of Collectors, Antique Dealers and Art Dealers and other associations.
