  • His paintings beautiful Museum (represented almost all the famous Russian painters), but its "zest"-wooden sculptures (remember the movie "Ivan VASILEVICH menyaet professiyu" seated wooden Christ convent Gallery). So so many absolutely amazing sculptures with an unusually emotional faces and unusual postures you hardly where else will see. For them, you can safely go to perm!

  • It was very exciting. Building is being renovated at the time extensively. Don't know whether it should be back to the Altès.

  • A wonderful collection of paintings by Western and Russian masters! Especially liked the BEAN KING Jordaens! I hope the gallery will leave the building!
