Galeev Gallery Archive

Galeev Gallery Archive

This archive was formed as a result of the gallery and publishing activities of Ildar Galeev, which focused on prewar artists at the periphery of public interest. Thanks to Galeev, the legacy of Pavel Kondratiev (1902–1985), a student of Kazimir Malevich, Pavel Filonov, and Mikhail Matiushin, was rediscovered. The archive includes a selection of sketches and drawings by Kondratiev and preparatory materials for the monograph on his work that was published in 2014. Another seminal but little‑known artist studied by the gallery was Gerta Nemenova (1905–1986), who lived in St. Petersburg/Leningrad, studied under Fernand Léger in Paris in the 1920s, and influenced an entire generation of Leningrad artist of the 1960s and 1970s. Her works in the archive include drawing series and lithographs from the 1950s and 1960s featuring everyday scenes and cultural events of her time. The subjects of her portrait series include singer and film actor Raphael, mime artist and clown Leonid Engibarov, actress Nina Urgant, and director Jean‑Louis Barrault. Her correspondence in French with the French artist Jean Carzou is also included in the archive.

The archive also includes sketchbooks, letters, and diaries by artist and art historian Stepan Yaremich (1869–1939); a selection of articles, posters, and invitations from the archive of artist and 13 Group member Boris Rybchenkov (1899–1994); manuscripts, letters, and photographs by Pavel Filonov’s student, the artist and set designer Boris Gurvich (1905–1985); the archive of Mikhail Plaksin (1898–1965), who was part of the 1920s avant‑garde collective OST; materials for a monograph on the founder of the Central Asian school of painting, Pavel Benkov (1879–1949); photographs of David Burliuk from the archive of Russian émigré artist Vasili Masyutin; 1920s glass negatives by artist, photographer, member of a group of avant‑garde artists of Turkestan (Masters of the New East) Semyon Malt (1900–1968); manuscripts by art historian and museum worker Anna Raikhenshtein on mass propaganda of the 1920s and the work of Solomon Nikritin; a number of manuscripts by Svetlana Chervonnaya (1936–2020) on the avant‑garde art of Kazan; and various materials on the art of the 1920s (Robert Falk, Pavel Filonov, Alisa Poret, Konstantin Rudakov, Nikolai Karakhan).

Galeev Gallery

Galeev Gallery was founded by Ildar Galeev (b. 1966, Tashkent) in Moscow in 2005. It specializes in showing forgotten works of prewar Russian art, focusing on little‑known artists active before 1941, including Yuri Velikanov (1904–1934), Vera Vilkovskaya (1890–1944), Pavel Kondratiev (1902–1984), Vasily Masyutin (1884–1955), Alisa Poret (1902–1984), and Konstantin Rudakov (1891–1949). Most of the gallery’s exhibitions feature works by a particular artist combined with biographical research based on documents relating to the artist and their circle. The gallery’s publishing program focuses on previously unpublished materials: diaries, literary works, and photographs. Galeev Gallery’s publications focus on writers, art historians, and collectors as well as to artists. Since 2006, the Gallery has been located in Bolshoi Kozikhinsky Lane in Moscow.
