Shishkin paintings in the Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow

The most famous painting in the Tretyakov Gallery

Wrap Picture

Of course, there are paintings that are remembered primarily at the mention of the Tretyakov Gallery. The painting “Morning in a Pine Forest”, written in 1889 by Ivan Shishkin and Konstantin Savitsky, became such a unique symbol of the museum. Pavel Tretyakov, having bought a painting, of the two signatures in the painting, left only the signature of Shishkin. However, the famous bear cubs on a fallen tree belong to the brush of K. Savitsky.
The popularity of this picture is explained quite simply - its reproduction, although with three bears, and not four, served as a candy wrapper for the well-known chocolates “Teddy Bear”. Suppose that in the Tretyakov Gallery were not all, but all ate candy.

Russian tales

Another image, familiar to us from childhood - three heroes on powerful horses in the middle of a wide field. The painting by Viktor Vasnetsov is called “The Bogatyrs” and brings back to memory Russian folk tales and epics.On the wall next to the warriors, the equally famous “Alyonushka” became sad over the dark water.
In the hall with portraits, it is as if you get into a lesson in literature — Pushkin won by Orest Kiprensky, but Gogol slyly squinted, but Leo Tolstoy with a gray beard.

Appearance of Christ to the people

To demonstrate the grand canvas A.A. Ivanov's "Appearance of Christ to the People" was built a whole museum building, where the picture occupies the entire second floor. "The phenomenon" is striking in size (five to seven meters) and the history of the creation of a length of 20 years. In this room, visitors linger for a long time to sit on the couch and carefully consider the huge picture.

History pages

The painting by Ilya Repin, known as “Ivan the Terrible Kills His Son,” is in fact called “Ivan the Terrible and his son Ivan on November 16, 1581”. The story of her stay in the museum is also marked by sinister events. During the reign of Alexander III, the picture was forbidden to exhibit. After the ban was lifted on January 16, 1913, the vandal stabbed the face of Ivan the Terrible with a knife, and the custodian of the Tretyakov Gallery, E. M. Khruslov, learning about this, rushed under the train. Artists and restorers had to recreate the face of the king.
The most famous Russian icon, the “Trinity” by Andrei Rublev, is also located in the State Tretyakov Gallery.

Rebellious spirit

The hero of the work of M.Yu. Lermontov was captured by the painter M. Vrubel in 1890 in the painting “The Demon Sitting”.
