Why locals love it

The museum's artworks come from the private collection of billionaire Russian businessman Boris Mints, owner of the investment holding company O1 Group. They include paintings from artists such as Konstantin Korovin, Igor Grabar, Yuri Pimenov and Valentin Serov.

Why you should visit it

While French impressionism is arguably the best known art movement in the world, Russian impressionism — which had a more complex evolution — remains less well studied. It is somewhat a controversial term. Few artists identified themselves as impressionists, despite adopting impressionist techniques in their painting style.
