Georgian artist’s works join Picasso, Van Gogh at Brooklyn Museum
Georgian artist Levan Songulashvili’s works are now a part of Brooklyn Museum’s famous collection, including works by world famous artists.
Levan’s works had been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum for eight months and the management made the decision to permanently keep them.
Songulashvili is the first Georgian artist, whose works are preserved at the mentioned museum along with the paintings of legendary artists like Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh and others. The reproductions of Levan’s works are already placed on the museum’s official webpage.
The aforementioned exhibition ended on June 18 and the works will move to other museums.
Brooklyn Museum is one of the largest in the world and there are many legendary paintings preserved there. There are also Asian, African and other sculptures, as well as examples of modern art.
The number of visitors was so large that the organizers decided to extend the exhibition. So these paintings will travel to other museums of the US.
Besides, Brooklyn Museum has published a book called Iggy Pop Life Class and there are Levan’s paintings included.

Moreover, the search system of the museum gives the opportunity to find an example of cultural item according to a specific country and thus, Georgia is already included.
