Owner description: New building of the Tretyakov Gallery at 10 Krymsky Val houses a unique museum exhibition of modern Russian art features works by Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich and other 20th-century artists. In the same building there is the Central House of Artists, and around there is a Sculpture Park.

Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val shows Russian art from an unsual perspective: it houses a collection of artworks, created after the Revolution and belongs to so-called social realistic" style. While not quite social, and definitely not realistic, pictures of this style show daily life of Soviet people not as it was, but rather as it should be. Everything looks too polished, too nice: everyone is healthy (not to say fat) and well-dressed, all streets are clean, all buildings are new, summer never seems to end, and Lenin is a paragon of wisdom. If you are not Russian, it's highly probable that you've never seen anything alike.
Highly recommendable!

This is a wonderful venue for learning the history and evolution of 20th and early 21st century Russian art. The collection is dazzling and goes on for gallery after gallery. Allow at least 3 hours to see it . Don't miss the sculpture boneyard immediately adjacent

The Tretyakov art gallery has a huge collection of paintings and sculptures. a must visit for all art lovers. There is a shopping area where re-prints are available at very reasonable prices, besides CDs and art books.

I thisk this place is a perfect collection of Russian art: from medieval ikons till morden art. Also decoration of the room is made perfect and there are some benches in the halls to sit and relax, to watch deeply the art pieces.
