Famed Russian Painting Makes U.S. Debut in Chicago Exhibition

Planned Property Management Encourages Gold Coast Residents to Check Out Rare Works at Red Square on Dearborn

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Sep 15, 2014) - In addition to providing a rare look at the painting style of Soviet Realism, the ongoing Chicago exhibition Red Square on Dearborn marks the first time a renowned work by artist Chaim Livchitz has been shown publicly in the United States.

Soviet Realism was a state-sanctioned style that spanned more than 50 years. One notable work is "The First Congress of Soviets, June 1917," a mural-sized painting Livchitz made in 1975 and that has never been exhibited in the United States. Red Square on Dearborn also includes the works of three other Russian-American artists and runs through June 3 at the Palette & Chisel Academy of Fine Art, 1012 N. Dearborn.

"Palette & Chisel is an iconic Chicago institution, and in Red Square it has an impressive selection of Soviet Realism and Russian avant-garde works that are not widely seen," said Jasko Omervic of Planned Property Management, which owns and manages numerous residential rental properties in the Gold Coast area, including at 1120 N. LaSalle. "It's one of the many exceptional cultural offerings of this great community."

Red Square also features paintings by Leonid Osseny, Misha Livchitz and Jacob Livshultz, whose collective work spans two continents and three generations. Since opening in May, the exhibition has generated substantial praise; the Chicago Tribune called it "an unprecedented glimpse of the Soviet Realism genre."

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission is free. Visit www.paletteandchisel.org for more details.
