The exhibition was organised by the Erzi Gallery, opened in autumn 2016 by collector Elizbar Margoshvili. It features the best works by founders of the unique Georgian painting school, including such masters as Lado Gudiashvili, Yelena Akhvlediani, David Kakabadze, Zurab Tsereteli and followers of their rebellious traditions.  

Visitors can see works by Zurab Nizharadze, Albert Goguadze, Kakhi Gigauri and Givi Agapishvili, Amur Kochishvili, Badri Pachuliya and other memorable artists until 9 May at the Central House of Artists. Their works offer a reflection on the universe, portraits of beautiful women, landscapes from Kakheti, Svaneti and corners of old Tbilisi, exotic still lives, and mythological subjects.

The exhibition presents works by Edmond Gabriel Kalandadze, painter, graphic artist and set designer Tengiz Mirzashvili, followers of the famous dynasty of Dzhovanni and Bruno Vepkhvadze, and legendary painters Dzhibson Khundadze and Otar Chkhartishvili.
