Ervand Kochar Museum, Yerevan

4.8
#10 of 62 in Museums in Armenia
Appreciate colorful early modernist 3D paintings and graphic artworks at Ervand Kochar Museum, a small museum in downtown Yerevan. The building houses a substantial collection of work detailing the life and opus of Ervand Kocher, a prominent Soviet Armenian avant-garde sculptor and a pioneer of 4D art thought. Known in the West as the founder of the Painting in Space movement in the 1930s, synthesizing painting, graphic art, and sculpture, he moved back to Armenia in 1936 to become one of the state's best-known artists. With works representing all of the cities in which the artist gained prominence--Tbilisi, Paris, and Yerevan--you can get a great overview of the his work and life. Take a guided tour to get the most out of the museum. Ervand Kochar Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Yerevan Edition.

  • Museum with a small and very interesting exposition. Unusual technique in combination with unusual perception of habitual things distinguish creations of the master in a sequence of works of his contemporaries. The very concept of his art balances on the verge of painting and sculpture. Three-dimensional work, in addition to those created in volume, is manifested through the layering of canvases, achieved some transparency of writing as if layered on each other translucent layers of one solid image.

  • Visiting this small museum in Yerevan is a must. The exhibit is very particular and different from other arts I have seen. The guided tour from the staff is definitely worth the money because you can ...  more »
  • Visited the Museum with his son 10 years old, who is studying at art school. It was interesting to learn about the spatial painting and its founder. Thanks for the tour of the Museum staff member! I recommend heartily!

  • A revelation of work of an artist little know in western art. This little museum and the tour was one of the best museums I've visited. And I've visited 100s around the world. I travelled to Armenia as a tourist but I'm not Armenian. I wish I could go back.
  • Ervand Qochar is one of the world great masters who was born in 20 th century but stay alives forever.
  • One of the best sculpture of the 20th century
  • Liked museum
  • One of the best museums in Yerevan. My perception of Kotchar's art is totally transformed. We spent there around 2 hours, while the museum area is so small, but our guide was telling us so many details about Kotchar's life, his challenges and inspirations, what symbols he put into every exhibited work. We totally emerged into athmosphere where artist lived, created, suffered, loved.. I didn't knew the story of his life and it was really breathtaking... Couple of works are so impressive that you may want to spend hours staying in front of it and listening about every symbol hidden in details of a great master. Beside this, we also spent sufficient time in souvenirs shop and couldn't choose which one is the best of the best - we wanted to take all of them with us :)) Our guide also advised to join their facebook page to be notified about art events or visit them on Saturdays for film-watching. Will do it with great pleasure Also location of the museum is great for tourists: they can visit it before taking a walk around Cascade or plan to visit cafe or dining places nearby.
