Description

The A.S. Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts is one of the most interesting places to visit in the capital. It contains the largest collection of foreign art in Moscow and, and the second largest in Russia (after the State Hermitage).

Yet the Pushkin Museum is not merely a place where you can see a collection of artifacts from Ancient Egypt or original paintings by Rembrandt, Poussin, and Canaletto as well as the works of famous impressionist and post-impressionist works by Claude Monet, Degas, Van Gogh, and Picasso.

The museum is special because it displays full-size plaster models of major monuments of the ancient, medieval, and Renaissance periods, giving visitors the opportunity to get acquainted with numerous masterpieces whose originals are scattered all over the galleries and museum collections of different countries. The true jem of this collection is the Italian Courtyard, an exact copy of palace Bargello in Florence. The Pushkin Museum is also one of the busiest venues in the city where temporary exhibitions are held. Among those held recently are major solo exhibitions of P. Picasso, W. Turner, Caravaggio, Titian, and Raphael.
