The photo shows Elina Norandi in the Fundació during her talk entitled “Olga Sacharoff, the images of a life as a painter”.
The painter Olga Nicolaevna Sacharoff (Tiflis, Georgia, 28th of May of 1889 - Barcelona, 1967) was an avant-garde painter settled in Catalonia. Sacharoff was a relevant figure during the avant-gardes of the past century. She also established strong connections to the Catalan art of the 1940s and 1950s and with the artistic and intellectual circles of the post-war.
In 2017, in the 50th anniversary of her death, several activities took place to pay her homage.
The Girona Art Museum showed a great part of Sacharoff’s works in an exhibition curated by Elina Norandi, who was also the coordinator of the Olga Sacharoff Year.
Every year, we receive the visit of students from different schools in La Garriga. During 2017, we had students coming from three different schools, Giroi, Tagamanent, Sant Lluís and Pinetons. The activities consisted of a visit to the exhibition of the engravings made by Conxa Sisquella and Fornells-Pla, which were shown at the Exhibition Room in the Fundació. During their visit, children were taught how to look at a contemporary art exhibition. Later, they learned about the engraving technique, with different examples, which make them familiar to the materials used: plates, tools, paintings...
In 2021, we would like to offer these activities to other schools in the region. If you are interested to participate, do not hesitate to let us know. You can get our contact details in this website.
