The State Tretyakov Gallery.
Kuznetsova Katya. Kuzmina Ira.
The State Tretyakov Gallery is the national treasury of Russian fine art and one of
the greatest museums in the world. It is located in Zamoskvorechye, not far from
the Kremlin. The façade of the gallery building was designed by the painter Victor
Vasnetsov in a peculiar Russian fairy-tale style. Little by little Tretyakov extended
his range of interest and began to collect earlier Russian paintings. The Gallery’s
collection consists entirely of Russian art and artists who have made а contribution
to the history of Russian art or been closely connected with it. The Gallery reflects
the whole history of Russian art, from the 11th century to the present day. The
gallery has the best collection of the Peredvizhniki, such as Kramskoy, Perov,
Myasoyedov, and others. The Tretyakov Gallery is not only a museum. It’s also a
research, cultural and educational centre
