Sculpture of the XVIII to early XX centuries

The State Russian Museum possesses the largest collection of sculpture of the period from the eighteenth to early twentieth centuries in Russia. It began to take shape in 1897-1898 thanks to the re-location of the most famous works of national masters from the Hermitage and the Academy of Arts, and also from acquisitions from private owners. However, prior to 1917 this collection numbered only 184 exhibits. Today the museum holds more than 2,000 works of sculpture of this period.
