Dedication to the master
The St Petersburg artists dedicate the Fourth Festival of Monotype Painting to Elizaveta Kruglikova, an extraordinary Russian artist of the early 20th century, born in St Petersburg in 1865. The year 2009 was chosen by the Festival organizers to mark the centenary of the year when Kruglikova invented her unique monotype technique in her workshop in Rue Boissonade, in Paris. This is how she later recalled this event:
“In 1909, I was working with theatrical subjects and I had no time to make etchings, and I accidentally arrived at the monotype without even knowing that it was monotype. And I got so absorbed in this new technique that I was making several monotypes a day, sometimes working late at night or early in the morning.” Before World War One, Elizaveta Kruglikova left Paris and moved to St Petersburg. She was an outstanding experimenting artist and a sensitive teacher, leaving behind a vast artistic heritage and many grateful followers and pupils, both in Russia and in France. She was one of the “magnanimous champions of painting”.

What are monotypes
Monotyping is a remarkable style of painting. Mono stands for “one”, and typos for “print”. Monotyping produces a single print, whichever paint or surface is used. The technique allows for a great variety of individual methods. Each artist uses the unique print in their own way. Monotyping has been called “the technique of Divine involvement”. It is definitive and imaginative. At the Festival, we will present the results of our pursuits – the artists’ finished works, and a creative process you can take part in: the master classes.

The Festival’s program includes:
1. An exhibition of monotypes
2. A conference on the art of Elizaveta Kruglikova
3. An exhibition of unique works illustrated by E. Kruglikova
4. Monotype master classes
5. Improvisations in overtone sounds
6. A Poetry evening
7. An evening of Silver Age (early 20th-century) songs
8. A literary essay competition (on a monotype-related topic)
