    In detail

    The A. Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts was founded on 17(29) August 1898. This day laying of the foundation stone for the new, created for public funds, Museum of Fine Arts named after Emperor Alexander III in Moscow near the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour on Volkhonka street took place.

    In 14 years, in May 1912, Museum was opened to the strains of solemn cantata especially composed for this event. Finally Museum was formed in the second half of 1920-1930th when art gallery appeared as a result of reallocation of the country museum funds. It united works of foreign artists from former Rumyantsev Museum, collections of S. Tretyakov, Yusupov, Shuvalov, G. Brokar, D. Shchukin and other collectors. The fundamental importance for paining gallery formation was given by the acquisitions from the State Hermitage which provided works of Boticelli, Rembrandt, Van Dake, Rubens, Poussin, Murilio and Kanaletto into Moscow. In 1932 the Fine Arts Museum was renamed into the State Museum of Fine Arts and in 1937 it obtained the name of A. Pushkin again.

    Image of the Museum art gallery was finally defined in 1948 when it was replenished by the works of artists from collection of former Museum of New Western Art in Moscow. There were works of painting of E. Manet, K. Monet, Renoir, Degas, Pissarro, Sisley, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse, Marquet, Rouault, Picasso and others once bought by Russian collectors S. Shchukin and I. Morozov. Significant collection of original West European sculpture and applied art was formed as a part of art gallery.

    Moscow's literary history: Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin (1799-1837)
    From Lubyanskaya Square to Kropotkinskaya

    The pedestrian zone, whose creation is planned from 2013, will cover Lubyanskaya Square, Treatralny Proezd, Okhotny Ryad Street, Mokhovaya Street and Volkhonka Street.

    From Lubyanskaya Square through Teatralny Proezd, past the famous Bolshoi Theatre, you will come to Manezhnaya Square and Alexandrovsky Garden.

    Walking along Mokhovaya, you are sure to notice “Manezh” — a unique architectural monument and central exhibition hall, where grandiose shows and presentations, international exhibitions and important city events take place. Another masterpiece of Russian classicism is located on Mokhovaya — the main home of Captain Lieutenant P. Pashkov's city estate, built from 1784-1787 by architect V. Bazhenov. Four stories, with two wings and a belvedere with a spire, the white stone mansion is sure to instantly catch your eye.

    At the end of the route awaits one of the most popular museums in Moscow and in Russia — The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, where, apart from its rich permanent exhibitions, frequently hosts exhibitions for art masterpieces from all around the world. If you wish, further along the route you can visit the Cathedral of Christ the Savior or end your walk here — metro station “Kropotkinskaya” is located nearby.
