New Tretyakov Gallery - Museum of Modern Art

Discover a variety of gems from Russia’s works of modern art at this specialist gallery in Moscow.

The New Tretyakov Gallery is an institution dedicated to 20th-century Russian art. View the diverse collection of art here; it will give you an excellent insight into the many genres from the period. Admire seminal works by influential artists including Kazimir Malevich and Wassily Kandinsky.

The gallery is part of the wider Tretyakov Gallery organization, which has several premises in Moscow. The founder was Pavel Tretyakov, a businessman who gifted his artwork collection to Moscow in 1892. The New Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val has been exhibiting pieces since 1986. Examine some of the 170,000 pieces in the museum’s possession.

To enter the gallery, look for the Central House of Artists in Fallen Monument Park. The gallery is located in a huge modern box-like building in the park. Notice the interesting examples of Communist-era sculptures in the Fallen Monument Park en route.

Inside the gallery, discover works of 20th-century art from the Russian avant-garde. This is a great opportunity to see works from some of the pioneers of abstract art. Here, find Kandinsky’s riotous Composition VII, one of his most famous works, and Malevich’s moody Black Suprematic Square.

Explore socialist realism, the official art form of the Soviet Union that celebrated the hardworking Communist. These works highlight the state’s ethos and help document this particular era of Russian history. As you examine the artworks, pay special attention to the representations of men and women living the socialist dream. Males are frequently depicted with rippling muscles and are hard at work in the fields, while females toil on the farm. Contrast these with the work of artists who contravened the official style, which is much more ambiguous than the straightforward mainstream Soviet art.

See more recent examples of cutting-edge Russian art from the later decades of the 20th century, which help show the evolution of modern art.

The New Tetrayakov Museum is located near the Park Kultury metro station. The gallery has an admission fee and is open Tuesday to Sunday.
