Venice carnival

Alexander Tiagny-Riadno. The blue mask.
3 March 2016—30 May 2016

The bright and mystical feast of the Venice carnival, attracting the public every February is one of the most loved and thrilling subjects for the photographers. Capturing the subtle and eternally elusive image of Venice and expressing the festive and playful atmosphere of the carnival and its very spirit is a difficult but captivating challenge for the masters of photography. In the beginning of spring the Russian Museum presents the most vivid images of the feast taken by the prominent Russian photographers such as Mikhail Shemyakin, Alexander Tiagny-Riadno, Vladimir Balabnev and others. The exhibition comprises around 100 photographs.

Master of Painting. 325th Anniversary of Ivan Vishnyakov’s Birth

26 April—1 July 2024

Ivan Vishnyakov is one of the leading artist of the 18th century, portraitist, mural painter, restorer and teacher. However, not much of the artist’s vast legacy, the result of thirty years of untiring creative activity, has survived to the present day. All the more valuable are the ten surviving portraits in the collections of the Russian Museum, the Tretyakov Gallery, the Museum of Vasily Tropinin and Moscow Artists of His Time, art museums in Tver and Rybinsk.
