More about the collection and works can be found in the video file.
The collection "Music" is an attempt to find and display the dialogue between the two Arts - Music and Visual Art in the fund of the Ruse Gallery. It includes about 70 works created over a long period, covering almost a century. It is a tradition of the 80s of the last century that the famous International Festival March Music Days should be accompanied by exhibitions that have turned in the previous eight years into shows - competitions with thematic musical orientation. Many of the works are related to this large-scale cultural event in Ruse. The collection was "taken out of the depot" for the first time in 2011 and was presented in several Bulgarian cities.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir was a French Impressionist painter whose eye for beauty made him one of the movement's most popular practitioners. He is best known for his paintings of bustling Parisian modernity and leisure in the last three decades of the nineteenth century. Though celebrated as a colorist with a keen eye for capturing the movement of light and shadow, Renoir started to explore Renaissance painting in the middle of his career, which led him to integrate more line and composition into his mature works and create some of his era's most timeless canvases.
Working alongside Claude Monet, Renoir was essential to developing Impressionist style in the late 1860s, but there is a decidedly human element to his work that sets him apart. Renoir had a brilliant eye for both intimate domesticity and the day's fashions, and his images of content families and well-dressed Parisian pleasure seekers created a bridge from Impressionism's more experimental aims to a modern, middle-class art public.
Renoir was the first Impressionist to perceive the potential limitations of an art based primarily on optical sensation and light effects. Though his discoveries in this field would always remain integral to his art, he reasserted the necessity of composition and underlying structure in modern painting, achieving in his mature work a structured, monumental style that acknowledged the strengths of High Renaissance art.
Renoir's example became indispensible for the major French movements of high modernism: Fauvism and Cubism. Like Renoir, the progenitors of these styles focused on issues of color, composition, and depth rather than quick sketches of individual moments. His composed, vivid paintings created a vital bridge from earlier colorists like Raphael, Peter Paul Rubens, Jean-Antoine Watteau, and Eugène Delacroix to the twentieth-century giants Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso.
Renoir discovered, that the lithographic technique is offering the possibility to spread his work amongst the upcoming middle class in Paris by that time. Since Toulouse-Lautrec it had been in fashion as well to create graphics from the stone. Renoir had been modern enough to follow this development, being aware that impressionism and litho-stones are opposites. Therefore he created in total 34 lithographs. The complete oeuvre of his lithographic work is shown in this exhibition.
Art Gallery Ruse is happy to invite to a very special exhibition, a Romanian project called WANTED, that represents an intersection between generation of artists and professionals.

Ioana, Cristian and Emanuel, are three professional artists, who apparently come from very different fields, nevertheless they manage to successfully collaborate, in projects such as this one they present in Ruse.
The WANTED project was born out of passion and love for this type of art. The main goal is to determine the audience to take notice in the characters in front and behind the movie scene or theatre stage, and present also, in detail, the beauty of various characters, like the Romanian writer Ion Luca Caragiale, Gollum and other 10 characters executed between the years 2011 and 2016 by Ioana, Cristian and the full service Studio GreenMind.
Within the exhibition, the Studio for advertising production and media “Greenmind” directed by the Romanian Photographer Emanuel Sava, presents a small labyrinth where the visitors can enter and admire each character in its room, behind some imaginary prison bars, waiting for the role to come, characters executed out of silicon and photography. In a period full of technology, where the visual art studios use the 3D effect more and more, GreenMind Studio offers you a fantastic story with plastic materials as real as they get: only photography and its art of manipulation.
Ioana ANGELESCU make-up artist with a rich record in professional make-up ,film ,theatre and television ,now fascinated by prosthetic developed a new branch of her carrier giving life in silicon and other materials like (GELATINE ,LATEX) to different characters, behind all this achievements hiding a huge work .

Among the well renowned artists she collaborated with we mention Gerard Depardieu.
Cristian Crestincov is a very talented sculptor, of Moldavian origins, whose style of work lies at the border between the figurative and the abstract. Since his graduation from the University for Fine Arts – Sculpture Division - Bucharest he has had various exhibitions all over Romania such as: 2013 at the Museum of the Traditional Costume, National Museum of the Village „Dimitrie Gusti”, Bucharest; 2015 International Symposium Constantin Brâncusi, Târgu Jiu; 2016 Kube by Musette in Bucharest; and also abroad in Berlin/ Germany in October, 2015.
