Unique in their entirety are collections of artists who created innovative artistic systems (K.S. Malevich, P.N. Filonov, K.S. Petrov-Vodkin), and of some major artists, including those whose artistic career started in Soviet times (S.V. Gerasimov, P.P. Konchalovsky, P.V. Kuznetsov, B.M. Kustodiev, V.V. Lebedev, A.A.
