Limited-Edition Stretched Canvas Prints signed by

artist Natasha Turovsky

A professional violinist, Natasha Turovsky discovered visual arts almost twenty years ago. She decided to pursue professionally her passion by enrolling in the Fine Arts program at Concordia University in Montreal in 1992, where she specialized in painting and printmaking.

Even with her busy schedule as a musician, she is an extremely prolific artist. She has produced hundreds of paintings and monotypes, along with several opera sets and series of paintings made after such musical cycles as Song of the Earth by Mahler and Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky.

For our auction, Ms. Turovsky has generously offered her collection of stretched canvas prints of “Pictures at an Exhibition”, signed by the artist


 

“Pictures at an Exhibition”

In our 2018-2019 season, one of the highlights was our concert of “Pictures at an Exhibition” by Mussorgsky performed by our NYPS Members in an innovative presentation of music and art with original paintings by notable Russian-Canadian artist, Natasha Turovsky.

“Mussorgsky created his famous “Pictures at an Exhibition” in 1874 as a tribute to a recently deceased friend, the architect and artist Victor Hartmann. The word “Pictures “in Mussorgsky’s title refers to a Hartman painting exhibition, organized in his honour a year after his death. “Pictures at an Exhibition” musically illustrate a visit to this exhibition. It incorporates musical pieces representing ten of Hartmann’s images, with an additional Promenade theme representing the viewer walking from exhibit to exhibit. Most of the works that inspired the composer are lost, either yet undiscovered or destroyed.”- Natasha Turovsky
