Klyun), constructivism (V.E. Tatlin, A.M. Rodchenko, A.A. Ekster, L.V. Popova), analytical art (P.N. Filonov). 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.
