The first hall is dedicated to the portrait of the XVIII century. On the canvases, executed by unsurpassed painters, we will see representatives of the Romanov dynasty, as well as famous people of that time. There are also many chamber portraits in the exposition. Two portraits by Karl Bryullov, presented at the exhibition, are endowed with an unusual pictorial gift and brilliance of the artist's craftsmanship.
The second hall is called “Moscow and Petersburg”. Among the exhibits are outstanding works by F. Alekseev and M. Vorobyov, dedicated to two Russian capitals — ancient Moscow and the new St. Petersburg.
In the third hall, visitors will see the "country of high inspirations" - Italy, where Russian artists spent a lot of time. The paintings by S. Shchedrin, A. Ivanov, N. Chernetsov and V. Raev immerse the viewer in the special romantic atmosphere of the Italian cities of Rome, Florence and Naples.
