Animation legends Yuri Norstein and his wife Francesca Yarbusova will be exhibiting their artwork from their films: original drawings and paintings, collages, sketches, books, etc. This is a great opportunity to see and collect their work.

Yuri Norstein is a distinguished Russian animator and director, the creator of memorable and award-winning films. In 1984 his film Tale of Tales was named The Best Animated Film of All Time in an event organized by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles with critics and filmmaker judges from all over the world. In 2002 this film was also named the best animated film of all time in a Zagreb International Animation Festival poll. In 2003, an international film jury in Tokyo declared Hedgehog in the Fog to be the best animated film of all time. For his contributions to art Norstein received the Order of Arts and Letters (France, 1991), and the Order of the Rising Sun (Japan, 2004), as well as many Russian state and independent awards.

Francesca Yarbusova is an award-winning artist, the wife and collaborator of Yuri Norstein. The successes of their films are as much her accomplishments as they are Norstein’s. Exhibitions of her artworks successfully showed in museums in Russia, France, Japan, etc. She is the recipient of the Great Gold Medal of the Russian Academy of Fine Art.

Screening of all the films, including the Norstein’s first animation, his little-known projects, as well as work-in-progress The Overcoat.
The art and souvenirs are available for collectors and art lovers to purchase.

All ages welcomed!
