Visit the State Russian Museum, an architectural complex where you can see Russian art in all its manifestations from the ancient times to the Postmodern, right in the very center of St Petersburg. See the collection of Russian canvas which was started by Emperor Alexander III in 1895 and was opened to the public in 1895. It had a very tight connection with the Academy of Arts where most Russian artists studied and later presented their work to nobility in the Mikhailovsky Palace and Benois Wing (now the main Russian Museum complex). Discover a collection that contains over 400,000 exhibits covering all major periods and trends in the history of Russian art, all main types and genres, schools of Russian art over more than a thousand years: from the 10th to the 21st century. See famous masterpieces such as 'The Black Square' by Kazimir Malevich, 'Bathing of a Red Horse', 'The Mother of God of Tenderness Towards Evil Hearts' by Petrov-Vodkin, 'Barge Haulers on the Volga' by Ilya Repin, 'The Ninth Wave' by Ivan Aivazovsky, 'Angel with Golden Hair' an icon made in 12th century, and many more.
