"Landscapes of Holland". An exhibitions of Dutch landscape painters in Kemerovo Russia
In 1921, an agreement was signed between Lenin and representatives of the Netherlands and America that provided for the recrutment of foreign workers and specialists to develop the industry in the new communist Russia. One of the most important and successful cooperations was in Kemerovo, Siberia, where the mining and chemical industry was further developed. In 1927, this cooperation was forbidden by Stalin and the foreigners left.
After de 2e worldwar the interest in this cooperation was started even the knowledge about the impotance of this cooperation.
We hoped to get a new cooperation with this exhibition of Dutch Landscaspe painters. Unfortunately, this initiative got no Russian continuation.
