Tretyakov Gallery Tour

Explore an Unique Collection of Russian Art from the Early Religious Paintings to the Modern Art

This Tour, leaded by English-speaking Art Expert, takes you to the Tretyakov State Gallery, the most important Museum of Russian Art in the World.

The Gallery was founded by Russian merchant and patron of the art Pavel Tretyakov. He donated his collection (1,362 paintings, 526 drawings, and 9 sculptures) to the city of Moscow in 1892.

Now, the collection contains more than 170,000 exhibits, ranging from "Theotokos of Vladimir" and Andrei Rublev's "Trinity" to the monumental "Composition VII" by Vassily Kandinsky and the "Black Square" by Kazimir Malevich.

The façade of the gallery building was designed by the painter Viktor Vasnetsov in a peculiar Russian fairy-tale style. It was built in 1902–04. During the 20th century, the gallery expanded to several neighboring buildings, including the 17th-century church of St. Nicholas in Tolmachi.
