Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts
The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts was founded by Ivan Tsvetaev, the father of legendary Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva, as the Alexander III Museum of Fine Arts in 1893. It earned its current name in 1937, though nothing about the museum has anything to do strictly with Pushkin.
The exquisite building on Volkhonka Street, built from 1898 to 1912 and designed by the legendary architects Roman Klein and Vladimir Shukhov, features numerous opulent halls, resplendent with copies of antique Egyptian, Medieval and Renaissance sculptures, as well as a considerable collection of Russian and European art from the 19th and 20th centuries.
Among Russia's museums, the Pushkin Museum is unique in the extent of its collaborations with Europe's leading museums, including Fondation Louis Vuitton and the Venice Biennale of Art.
