As befits the Arts Square itself, a variety of trends, styles, and types of art come together under the roof of the Arts Square Gallery – from folk crafts to antiques, from decorative arts to jewelry, from works by contemporary artists to the acknowledged masterpieces of classical art. Here, visitors may not only admire the artworks on display, but also participate in lively debates, learn new creative skills, enhance their understanding of art, broaden their experience and share knowledge. Our highly professional staff act as guarantors of a friendly atmosphere, positive feelings and a good mood.
PERMANENT EXHIBITION OF SOVIET FINE ART
One of the rooms in the gallery features a display of artworks from the collection of philanthropist and collector Mikhail Sasonko. His collection of paintings, graphic art and miniature sculptures includes several thousand works created both by renowned masters as well as by less celebrated yet equally talented artists who – for one reason or another – have been largely forgotten, but whose works are no inferior to the classics. The pride of the collection are paintings by Arkady Rylov, Fyodor Reshetnikov, Aleksei Gritsai, Dmitry Nalbandyan, Vyacheslav Pakulin, Viktor Proshkin, Evsey Moiseenko, Petr Petrovichev, Gennady Myznikov, Georgy Niski, Arseny Semionov, Alexander Alkhovsky, Oleg Gadalov, Nikolai Galakhov and others.
