The New Tretyakov Gallery, linked administratively to the original Tretyakov Gallery, contains modern Russian masterpieces, including works of Socialist Realism.
The Tretyakov Gallery is in many ways a unique museum. Its paintings reflect the varied life-styles and intellectual spectrum of the Russian people throughout the many centuries of their history.The Gallery was founded by Pavel Tretyakov (1839-1889), a Russian merchant and industrialist. In 1892 Pavel Tretyakov formally donated his collection to the city of Moscow.
Tretyakov wrote in 1860: “Being a man sincerely and faithfully fond of the art of painting I have a lifelong wish to start a public and easily accessible treasury of fine arts, one that will be useful to many and enjoyable to all.
