The history of relief of the 19th century is presented on the example of works by F.Tolstoy, I.Vitaly and G.Zaleman. Another line of development of relief of the 19th century that is connected with the realistic trend is presented on example of the genre and portrait sculptures by M.Antokolsky, J.Serjakov, P.Zabello, A.Opekushin. At the beginning of the 20th century the relief n Russia got the thematic and stylistic diversity (works by A.Ober, M.Dillon, A.Golubkina). The section that is devoted to the relief of the 20th century presents the new forms of agitation art that had been worked out after the October Revolution (works by S.Lebedeva and N.Altman), with the unique phenomenon - the art of students of the Leningrad Institute of the People of North (bas-reliefs by Bekerov and Namunka) with the examples of decorative plastic of the 20th century (I.Efimov) and reliefs devoted to the theme of he Great Patriotic War (works by D.Jakerson of the war time and monumental works by V.Kaplyansky and F.Malahin).
