    Alexander Gassel: Rediscovering the Past, Exhibition of Paintings

    Museum of Russian Icons announces an exhibition of contemporary paintings by artist and designer, Alexander (Sasha) Gassel. Born in Moscow, USSR in 1947, Gassel graduated from Moscow Institute of Arts and Graphics in 1970 with an MFA. From the late 1960s to 1980, he worked at the Grabar Center for the Restoration and Preservation of Art in Moscow. Gassel’s style evolved as much from early icon painting as from 20th Russian masters like Erte, Chagall, Kandinsky and the complex formal structures of Kazimir Malevich—all integrated to generate a highly sophisticated, distinctive style that is unique—yet typically Russian. He creates his paintings—mainly, personal interpretations of Biblical events—using traditional and ancient techniques learned from observation and also through his conservation training.
