Tretyakov Gallery

Tretyakov Gallery is one of the most impressive collections of Russian art. The gallery’s history starts in XIX century when the Moscow merchant Pavel Tretyakov acquired works by Russian artists of his day with the aim of creating a collection, and placed them in Lavrushinsky lane, in the building which would become the museum later on.

In the Tretyakov Gallery you can see works of Russian icon painters  Andrew Rublev and Dionisy, works by Russian painters of the XIX century: The Morning on pine wood by Ivan Shishkin, Alyonushka by Vasnetsov, Ivan the Terrible and his son Ivan by Repin and a grim picture the Apotheosis of War by Vereshchagin. Some rooms are devoted to the artists of the XX century, among them M. Vrubel, N. Reorikh.
