"MOSCOW GUIDE." A WALK AROUND MOSCOW WITH VASILY SELIVANOV
As a part of the "Moscow Guide" project, m24.ru columnist Alexei Pevchev walks with famous cultural figures who show their favorite places in the capital and recall personal stories related to them. This time the route is by Russian sculptor, People's Artist of the Russian Federation Vasily Selivanov.
He walked the spectators through Verkhnyaya Maslovka, where since 1930 the first house of artists in Moscow has been rising. Famous artists and sculptors lived there, including Igor Grabar, Ernst Neizvestny, Vadim Sidur and many others. Vasily remembered how masters were friends, went to visit each other. He said that Ernst Neizvestny's friends were specially locked in the apartment, so that he did not get drunk to oblivion. But the sculptor still climbed out of the vent and walked into the shop for the bottle.
