The State Tretyakov Gallery Visited on 8/10/2019 In front of The State Tretyakov Gallery stands the statue of Pavel Mikhailovich Tretyakov, a Moscow merchant who acquired the works by Russian artists of his day. His collection of about 2000 works was later presented to the city of Moscow as a gift. The Tretyakov family acquired this house where The State Tretyakov Gallery is standing. As Tretyakov's collection grew, more and more extensions were added to the original house. The State Tretyakov Gallery is now an art gallery, houses an exposition of Russian art of the 12th - early 20th century. It occupies 62 rooms on two floors. The collection contains more than 130,000 exhibits. Although I am not an artist or art enthusiast, I cannot deny that I am very impressed by the paintings, some are gigantic in size, depicting portraits of prominent figures of Russian culture.
A very big gallery with great artwork (if you're a fan of it). You need at least a couple of hours to see all of it. The ticket is 500 rubbles for adults. But I'd recommend the Shimov gallery. Much more impressive.
What an amazing memorable place when i went in i wasn't sure of the amount of beautiful Art present at this gallery my original plan was to spend couple of hours only but i ended up being mesmerized and deeply lost in the beautiful paintings and lost track of time. Below you can see some of my favorite paintings at the gallery. I would highly recommending this place if you are Art lover like me.
One of the best art museums in the world. The masterpiece "The Appearance of Christ before the people" by Alexander Ivanov is a bliss to witness ❤️❤️❤️
It has day off on Monday. They close at 21 but it has a lot of arts in there so if you want to look around all you should visit early for looking all of them. If you visit Moscow then you have to visit here. It will take almost 4-5 hours to look around normally. You should check it. The entrance price 400 ruble as i remember with this price can enjoy the art? There is no reason to not visit here.
