ARCHILE GORKY'S MUSEUM TO OPEN IN ETCHMIADZIN
YEREVAN, APRIL 14, ARMENPRESS: The Armenian government has released funds
for publication of collection of letters, sent by world famous American
Armenian painter Arshile Gorky to his sister. The 50 letters will be
published in English and Armenian in 1000 copies.
Also before the end of the year a museum displaying some of his pictures
will open in Etchmiadzin, a town 20 km off Yerevan, where the headquarters
of the Armenian Apostolic Church are. Some 55 pictures are supposed to be on
display, which his sister donated to the Church and which are kept now in
Gulbenkian Center in Lisbon.
