The Tretyakov Gallery houses some of the great masterpieces of
traditional Russian art from before the Revolution and has the
world's finest collection of Russian icons from the 11th to the
17th centuries. The gallery's collection of paintings, graphics and
sculptures covers Russian art from the 18th to the 20th century.
The gallery was named after its founder, Pavel Tretyakov, an art
collector who donated about 2,000 works of art from his private
collection to the city of Moscow, forming the basis of the
collection to which state acquisitions were later added. He also
donated his own house, which became the original site of the art
gallery. Two separate buildings at different locations house the
works selected for display.
