We all know that the Tretyakov Gallery is the world’s largest collection of paintings by Russian artists. These pictures we are accustomed to seeing from childhood with the pages of textbooks, magazines, books.
But, believe me, all their value you understand only when you stand directly in front of the picture. Faina Ranevskaya, who served in many theaters in Moscow. To the question of which of them she had found real art, invariably replied: “In the Tretyakov Gallery.” Yes, there really is a pure, genuine art that inspires and supports the viewer in any life situations.
Remember the “Girl with peaches” Serov, “Morning in the pine forest” Shishkin, “Rooks arrived” Savrasov: what different emotions they evoke from the viewer. But this is our native art, affecting the deep strings of the Russian character.
In the Tretyakov Gallery there are a lot of pictures, in which the characters of Russian history. “The Morning of the Strelets’ Execution” Surikov, “The Sophia of Sofia” Repin, “Boyarynya Morozova” Surikov, Ivan the Terrible Kills His Son and others appear to us as living beings. And immediately historical events become close and understandable, as if they occurred only yesterday.
Fans of Russian icon painting can visit the hall of Old Russian art. Which contains the originals of the icons of Andrei Rublev (“Trinity”, “Archangel Michael”, “Spas”), Dionysius, Maxim the Greek.
