The State Tretyakov Gallery is an art gallery in Moscow, Russia, the foremost depository of Russian fine art in the world. It was been originated in 1856 by the Moscow merchant Pavel Mikhailovich Tretyakov, who acquired works by the most famous Russian artists of his day.
Currently, the collection contains more than 130,000 paintings, drawings, and sculptures, ranging from Theotokos of Vladimir and Andrei Rublev's Trinity to the monumental Composition VII by Wassily Kandinsky and the Black Square by Kazimir Malevich.
In May 2012, the Tretyakov art Gallery played host to the prestigious FIDE World Chess Championship between Vishwanathan Anand and Boris Gelfand as the organizers felt the event would promote both chess and art at the same time.
Our guest speaker will guide us “virtually” through the museum describing its most famous masterpieces. It will be a very fascinating and educational experience for our audience, especially for those who study art, history and Russian.
After the lecture we will hold a Q&A session, followed by reception with a wide variety of Slavic food.
Everyone is welcome!
