The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts is the largest museum of European art in Moscow. The museum’s current name has no direct associations with the famous Russian poet Alexander Pushkin, other than as a posthumous commemoration of his name and fame when it was renamed in his honour in 1937, on the 100th anniversary of his death.
Masterpieces of the Pushkin Museum
- “Bucentaur’s return to the pier by the Palazzo Ducale” by Canaletto
- Priam’s Treasure
- “Seagulls, the River Thames and the Houses of Parliament” by Claude Monet
