Victor Vasnetsov Museum

The Tretyakov Gallery presents an exhibition timed to the 170th anniversary of Viktor Mikhailovich Vasnetsov (1848–1926) and the 65th anniversary of the Victor Vasnetsov House Museum’s inauguration.

The exhibition presents photographs and documents from the memorial fund of the Victor Vasnetsov House Museum, most of which are on display for the first time. In addition, the portrait gallery of the memorial rooms will be complemented by the portraits of Victor Vasnetsov’s relatives and friends which he painted over the years. The paintings depict those who lived in this house, preserved the heritage of the artist and helped to create the museum. Among them are portraits of Zinaida Konstantinovna Vasnetsova-Sokolova (the museum’s first curator) and Alexandra Savvishna Mamontova, who lived in the Vasnetsovs’ house from 1929 to 1942.
