Derbent, January 28, 2016. The exhibition of works by the Honored Artist of Dagestan, one of the founders of Dagestan fine arts Dmitry Kapanitsyn (1895-1961) opens January 28 in the Museum Of History of World Cultures and Religions in Derbent, public relations officer of the republican Ministry of Culture told the RIA "Dagestan". The venue has not been chosen by chance, since he was born in the city of Derbent. For the first time the exhibition dedicated to the 120th anniversary of birth of the artist will demonstrate Kapanitsyn’s collection of works kept in Dagestan State United Historical and Architectural Museum and not known to the public.

The exposition includes more than 40 outdoor sketches depicting household items, labor and ethnic peculiarities of rural residents of the Southern Dagestan, which were created by the author in summer 1925, when he was the 1st course student at Leningrad Art-Industrial College. The second part of the exhibition consist of a series of genre scenes (watercolor on paper), dedicated to the current events of his time - the foundation of collective farms, the construction of the October revolution channel, the scenes from the life of towns and villages, the Revolution and the Great Patriotic War.

The project’s author, an art historian, Kapanitsyn’s creativity researcher Jameelya Dagirova said: "Dmitry Kapanitsyn’s works deliver the very time environment, a special emotional lift experienced by the society, the young republic in 1930-1940 years. Easel painting and drawing, illustration books, design, monumental art, pedagogical activity – is a small range of master’s activity".

In 2006, the Dagestan Museum of Fine Arts named after P. Gamzatova implemented memorial exhibition project "Artist and teacher", dedicated to D. Kapanitsyn’s work and social activities. Thus, the museum celebrated the 110th anniversary of the talented painter, unselfish soul of the person, the undeservedly forgotten by the current generation of Dagestan artistic community and the public. This project, according to Dagirova, marked the beginning of study and promotion of the artist’s creative heritage ten years ago. The forthcoming exhibition in Derbent complement his creative portrait too.
