THE DESCRIPTION OF TOUR
Pushkin Fine Arts Museum
The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts is Moscow's equivalent to St. Petersburg's enormous Hermitage Museum, and boasts an impressive collection ranging from Roman antiquities to canvasses by Gauguin. The museum was established in 1912 by the father of the famous Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva, who was well renowned in Moscow as a Professor of Art History at Moscow State University. The early collection was comprised mainly of casts of antique, Medieval and Roman sculptures, which were somewhat controversially augmented with artifacts from private collections that were confiscated after the Revolution of 1917.
