Enjoy your 6 hours Art Museum tour in Moscow
If you are in Moscow on a holiday or have a few days free from business meetings and you are interested in art, The Tretyakov Gallery - the famous art museum - should definitely be on your list of places to visit.
The gallery is right in the centre of the city, located on the south bank of the Moskva river, opposite the Kremlin. The museum contains about 130, 000 art pieces from early icons to modern paintings; all these are displayed in 62 rooms. The collection was started in 1856 by two brothers, textile businessmen Pavel and Sergei Tretyakov who later donated the whole museum to the state.
The most famous works of art in the collection are The Theotokos of Vladimir, also known as Mother Of God Of Vladimir - one of the most honoured Orthodox icons, an example of Eleusa Byzantine iconography; The Trinity by the great medieval icon painter Andrei Rublyov; Ilia Repin's renowned and beloved realistic portraits; the famous and controversial Black Square by Malevich.
