Dior exhibition

I went to this awsome exhibiton on Friday. 22 of July. And after 2 days, 24 of July this exhibition ended. So lucky for me, I could get there, before standing in a queue about 15-20 minutes.
Ticket costs 400 RUB.
And then I started to explore everything. Fabulous dresses! Haute couture dresses, dresses that actresses worn on the Oscar and other important events. Nicole Kidman, princess Diana, Marion Cotillard, Drew Barrimore dresses. Lots of pictures of Christian Dior. Perfumes, jewelry...
There wasn't allowed to take a photos, BUT... I made some while nobody saw me ;-)
After exhibiton I bought a book about this exhibition and I went to the main exhibit free.

Monday - don't work.

This is a fine museum located in the center of the city. It particularly has a big collection of ancient art as well as Renaissance masters, Impressionists and modern art. In contrast to Tretyakov gallery, its focus is on foreign art.

Ancient treasure and European masterpieces

European art is the main focus of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Art though there are some Egyptian treasures in the first rooms, including a particularly good group of Fayyum portraits as well as other ancient world artifacts . Following that, room after room, atriums and galleries lead you on through a dazzling array of paintings, sculptures, drawings -and a fair number of fairly ordinary plaster casts of Roman and Renaissance works. Don't bother with the latter - there are more than enough wonderful things here to keep you occupied for hours: from old masters such as Rembrandt, Rubens, El Greco and Caravaggio to the greats of the 20th century like Kandinsky, Miro, Picasso, a couple of particularly good Van Goghs, Matisse - these and countless others are all here..
There are works here whose legitimacy of ownership is questionable; the booty of war and revolution, they have only been on show for the last few years. Currently (2005) one of the greatest of these treasures, the fabulous collection of gold from Troy, is off display.

Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts

This is an amazing museum that I enjoyed very much to visit. Many of its collections are amazing and you can see great sculptors as great painters from all different times in art history. Great Van Goghs and great Matisses along with Picassos can be seen.
By the time I visited it there was this video from Bill Viola taken place and also this huge exhibit called "RUSSIA vs ITALY", given a short view of Italy art scene in the Renaissance period. So a few Leonardos could be seen.

At the time my ticket costed 150 rubbles as i am a student.

Pushkin Museam

The Pushkin has some real highlites, The Vangoh Prisoners, a fair number of Picassos, two nice Degas, an El Greco, etc.

Just skip the main floor. The plaster casts of Greek, roman, and renesance statues may be interesting for art students but it would qualify as a tourist trap for most.

The State Museum of Fine Arts named after Pushkin. A greatest collection of unique pieces of art from different epochs and countries! Worth a visit, definitely. After visiting this museum, you can go to the wonderful newly restored Church of Christ the Redeemer, walk in its squares, sit on the bench among flowers, see the magnificent church and listen to the service.
