Author's excursion "The Traits of Russian Impressionism"
Konstantin Korovin and Boris Kustodiev, Nikolay Bogdanov-Belsky, Valentin Serov, Igor Grabar and others: the entire history of Russian Impressionism is collected in the permanent exhibition of the Museum of Russian Impressionism. From paintings by the masters who laid the foundations of Impressionism to the works of world-famous contemporary artists. The very concept of "Russian Impressionism" still causes heated debate. Born at the end of the 19th century, Russian Impressionism had almost acquired its own voice before it began to be actively replaced by the avant-garde. After the revolution, it found itself outside of the system. But against all odds, many artists, both before and after the political upheaval in the country, continued to create in the impressionistic style, to experiment with light and colour on their canvases, sought to convey mood, emotion, and catch the finest air vibrations. Impressionism still inspires artists today. The tour is led by the director of the museum, Yulia Petrova.

Curator's tour of the exhibition "Yury Annenkov. Revolution Behind the Door"
The avant-garde artist who could do anything. The author of Gorky's and Akhmatova's portraits and the illustrator of Moidodyr, director of a mass performance with 8,000 people and an Oscar nominee for costume design. All this was done by one person: Yury Annenkov, one of the most expensive Russian artists. The Museum of Russian Impressionism displays such a great number of Yury Annenkov's works for the first time: more than 150 paintings, graphic portraits and sketches from the leading museums and private collections in Russia and France. The online tour is led by the exhibition curator Anastasia Vinokurova.
