Tretiakov Galery

The history of this museum dates back to 1860 when an entrepreneur Pavel Tretiakov started to buy objects of art for the decoration of halls and rooms of his Moscow house. Every year he bought dozens of new works of art at the exhibitions and in the studios of Russian artists. Very soon in 1872 he had to order to build a separate building next to his house to store the growing collection. The museum was transferred to Moscow in 1892. Today the collection that numbers more than 100.000 pieces can illustrate the development of Russian art from its origins till the 20th century, i.e. from anonymous Russian icons to the paintings signed by Kandinsky and Malevich.
