Owner description: Once you've perused the Pushkin Museum, stop in next door to view the treasures in these private collections acquired in Soviet times, including works by Salvador Dali and Henri Matisse, ballet set designs, Russian icons and a whole floor of 20th-century art.

This art museum is part of the art museum complex by the Pushkin Art Museum.It has a fine array of icons and Russian paintings in a cozy environment.Painters well-represented here when i visited it in early December were;Ilya Repin,Vasily Polenov,Ivan Letunov,Shishkin,and David Schterenberg.My favorite Russian painting was Ivan Letunov'"Russian Steambath".Their collection of Non-Russian paintings is very sketchy,although I saw fine paintings by Jan Bijlert("Granida")and Andreas Schelfhout.This art museum has a splendid collection of drawings by Albrecht Durer,Rembrandt,and Thomas Rowlandson.This art museum has their works of art labelled in English.It is worthwhile,even though the Pushkin Art Museum is clearly superior.
