Russia and the Arts is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see masterpieces from the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.

The exhibition focuses on the great writers, artists, actors, composers and patrons whose achievements helped develop an extraordinary and rich cultural scene in Russia between 1867 and 1914.

The exhibition also shows how Russian art was developing a new self-confidence, with penetrating early Realism later complemented by the brighter hues of Russian Impressionism and the bold, faceted forms of Cubism.’ (NPG)
