Commonwealth young Moscow artists; got its name from the exhibition held March 18 — on 29 April 1907 at the home of industrialist M. S. Kuznetsov on Myasnitskaya street in Moscow. Its architectural composition and content largely has been prepared by the exhibition "scarlet rose" in Saratov (1904). The exhibition "Blue rose" was arranged on the initiative and at the expense of the publisher of the magazine "Golden fleece", patron, collector and artist-любителя N. P. Ryabushinsky. The band name presumably belongs to the poet V. Ya. Bryusov; widespread in the Russian symbolism the image of a blue rose symbolized the longing for the unknown, the unattainable, similar to the "blue flower" of NOVALIS, and associated "blue (blue) bird" by M. Maeterlinck. However, the name emphasizes the continuity with the Scarlet rose.

the exhibition presented 58 works including paintings: "spring" N. P. Krymov, "Morning (Birth)" P. V. Kuznetsov, "Portrait Of L. N. GAUS", "Pastoral" . D. Milioti, "Masquerade" . N.

a Characteristic feature of the exhibition — elegant decoration rooms with stylish furniture, decorated silver-серыми and gently-голубыми fabrics, decorated with fresh flowers. All was intended to immerse the viewer in the illusion of dream and fairy tales. According to the memoirs of contemporaries, the opening was arranged "with such exceptional delicacy of beauty, such never seen. Fragrant flowers exhibition, an invisible orchestra as-то softly and sensually played, the beauty of the soft gentle colors in the paintings, naryadnaya, a beautiful crowd... we've all zharmonizowana, charmingly, as whole, beautiful and happy". The exhibition was visited by more than five thousand people.

the Exhibition attracted diametrically opposed reviews in the press, was the cause of considerable controversy between I. E. Grabar (magazine "Libra"), and V. D. Milioti ("Golden fleece"). S. K. Makovsky in the journal Zolotoe Runo wrote: "the Blue rose" — beautiful exhibition-часовня. For the very few.... Light. Quiet. And paintings — as prayer... When you enter this small chapel, decorated with the skill of an old taste, just feel that @ldquo;голубая rose@rdquo; not only the flower greenhouses, but spring flower mystical love. So far — and from the busy everyday life of the European secessional and from boudoir elegance exhibitions Diaghilev".

the Exhibition was accompanied by what-либо Manifesto, but demonstrated the internal unity of the group.Many artists "Blue roses" almost simultaneously participated in the exhibitions "Wreath — Stefanos" (1907, Moscow), the "crown" (1908, Saint-Петербург), Golden fleece (1908, 1909, Moscow), 4-й and 5-й exhibitions of the Union of Russian artists (1906/1907, 1907/1908, Moscow, St.-Петербург).

In 1925 in Moscow (state Tretyakov gallery) held a retrospective exhibition "masters of the Blue rose", which was significantly different from 1-й exhibition as the composition and number of participants (not presented in A. A. Arapov, p. P. Bromirski, V. P. Kittenplay, I. A. Knabe, V. D. Milioti, . P. Ryabushinsky, . N. Sapunov; participated G. B. Yakulov), and exhibited works.
