The history of the Tretyakov Gallery began long before the foundation of the all-Union Museum Association "State Tretyakov Gallery". In the middle of the XIX century the family of the merchant P. Tretyakov bought the house on Lavrushinsky Pereulok in Moscow and in 1856 Pavel Mikhailovich became the owner of the first paintings in his collection. In 1892 he donated his collection to the Moscow city and, thereby, he established the first public museum in Russia. Nowadays, the museum association includes 7 buildings, among which there is the famous museum-church of Saint Nicholas in Tolmachi.

In the ancient Russian art department you may see the works of unknown authors, as well as the famous icon-painters, such as Theophanes the Greek, A. Rublev and Dionisius. The hall of the XVIII - beginning of the XIX centuries demonstrates the paintings of well-known Russian masters: F. Rokotov, K. Brullov, D. Levitsky.

Repin is shown here in his work "The portrait of the old lady" and in many other famous paintings. The real pearl of the collection are the landscape works of the sea-scapes painter I. Levitan.
