Vladimir Gusev, director of the State Russian Art Museum of St. Petersburg, visited Málaga for the launch of the new branch of the museum in the city.
The opening of the museum was held on March 25.
The museum, which expects to receive 150,000 visitors during its first year, currently houses 169 pieces of Russian 15th to 20th century art plus a temporary display of 69 pieces dedicated to Sergei Diaghilev, founder of the Ballets Russes.
This year’s permanent collection aims to provide an insight on the development of Russian art over the years from religious pieces from medieval times to modern work of recent years, while the temporary exhibition offers a look at Russian culture in the 20th century.
