 V.M.Vasnetsov House and Museum 

 
 

     Viktor Michailovich Vasnetsov (1848-1926) is a Russian painter, architect, master of historical and folk painting. He is an older brother of the painter Appolinary Vasnetsov.
    V.M.Vasnetsov House and Museum was opened in 1953 upon the will of Vasnetsov`s successors who gave the house to the state. The house was built in 1893-1894 upon Vasnetov`s pictures and is nor a monument of architecture. The museum is dedicated to V.M.Vasnetsov`s work (the painter lived there since 1894 till 1926 and died there). After the painter`s death his family continued to live there.
    In 1986 the museum joined the museum association “Statу Tretyakov Gallery”. The exposition has about 25 thousands of exhibits reflecting the painter`s work and everyday life and Vasnetsov`s collections.
