Classic Russian Art

The original Tretyakov gallery with a great collection of Russian masterpieces, including many great works by Vrubel. The icon collection is especially impressive!

Beautiful works of art by Russian artists. These artists had fantastic knowledge of the use of color in painting portraits. The audioguide is very important to understand the most important pieces at this museum.

My friend from Moscow highly recommended it to me and litteraly put me inside. I usually don't like museums and it was a museum... So I guess for common people it must be very joyful but not for me. it is full of pictures from Russian art, so oftenly black, grey, sad, etc.

The good thing about such museums is that regular visits form good taste and intellectual beauty :) Masterpieces of Russian artists of all times should be seen to understand the country, its culture, character.

I only had one full day during my second visit to Moscow after my first visit 22 years. So I picked top of the tops attractions in Moscow to visit during the daylight, leaving other time to walk around to appreciate the modern Russian culture and changes. Tretyakov Gallery was picked after Red Square and Kremlin Museums. This museum had... More

Between St, Petersburg and Moscow this particular museum was enjoyed but not necessarily one of the better ones in my opinion. Worth a visit no doubt as its considered to have an impressive collection and did by all means. Perhaps my visit to the Pushkin the day before over shadowed this visit. Adding to the fact that after a while... More

I had only 45 minutes to run through this place and it still impressed me so much. How come I've never heard about or seen any of these master pieces? Is it a conspiracy to deprive Russian artists of their rightful place among the world's masters? Or is it just a misfortune that they remain in possession of private collectors... More

A superb collection covering the centuries with some amazing examples. To a Russian many of the artists represented are really well known and some paintings famous in their culture but not to the average non Russian visitor. The Icon section certainly stands out not just because of the items age but of quality - you do not need to be... More

If you're interested in paintings. Go there, stay there for some hours. Relax. Enjoy. Once a private collection it's there to attract visitors from elsewhere. You maybe not interested in painting but the place is definitely worth seeing and enjoying.
