Moissej Nappelbaum: Russian artists

Preview

Galerie Berinson presents Moissej Nappelbaum, the unrivaled portrait photographer of Soviet Russia. The exhibition comprises more than 50 rare original prints – including portraits of Vladimir Tatlin, Sergej Eisenstein, Boris Pasternak, Maxim Gorky, Dmitri Shostakovich, Sergej Prokofiev and Lion Feuchtwanger. Nappelbaum’s career began with a craft apprenticeship in Minsk, after which he travelled throughout Russia and the United States. En route, he garnered impressions of photographic modes and methods then, after a visit to the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, claimed Rembrandt as his true master. Nappelbaum first settled down as a photographer in Minsk, before moving with his family in 1910 to Saint Petersburg, where he opened his studio on Nevsky Prospect.
