  • Cool, when the old industrial buildings of red brick, as previously loved build, give new life. It is a European tradition, renovate industrial premises and conduct there. So when I got to the Museum of Russian realistic art, initially I appreciated architectural solution itself. A large brick chimney, wrought-iron staircases, brick. Then immediately at the entrance were pleased with the gift shop, I bought a mug and some postcards. Next, I got acquainted with the exposition. On several floors are mostly the work of artists working in the realistic genre. Not all paintings impressed, but many. After that came to the Museum to exhibit art in evacuation "on how art school moved to remote areas of the SOVIET UNION, fleeing from the war. Travel from Paveletskaya minutes 15-20.

  • Walked with their children. Firstly a very colorful building of the former factory. Hit on the last day of the exhibition "Russia along the way." She liked most of all. There are glasses interesting paintings. Second floor-socialist realism paintings with views of Russian nature. Here's something interesting to something. I like the paintings in the exhibition and found Mr. Deineko part pictures, which saw for the first time. Least ponravilast exhibition of paintings by Ivanova-not mine. In any case, I recommend to visit the Museum.
