To the National Unity Day, the State Tretyakov Gallery presents a focus exhibition dedicated to Konstantin Makovsky’s (1839–1915) painting Ivan Susanin.

This canvas was painted in 1914 shortly before the artist’s death. The painter was preparing the painting to the celebration of the 300th anniversary of the House of Romanov in 1913. Due to the scale and complexity of the composition, Makovsky did not manage to finish the work by the anniversary: his work was interrupted by the ​​political upheavals, the beginning of the First World War, and shortly after - the untimely death of the master. The traces of the painting had been lost for many years. In 2016, the painting appeared at the auction of English Sotheby’s, where it was acquired by Russian collectors and brought back home. After the completion of restoration work, the art piece by Makovsky is exhibited for the first time.
