The Institute of Russian Realist Art (IRRA) is a private museum project aimed at reviving traditions of Russian patronage of arts. The art collection of IRRA is presently considered one of the finest collections of paintings of the 20th century national realistic school.
Three floors of the exhibition space with the total area of over 4,500 square meters house the exposition of nearly 500 works of Russian and Soviet art.
One of the most significant sections of the museum's collection - Soviet painting of the first half of the 20th century - is displayed in the halls of the 2nd floor. Here you will see works by the great masters of Russian realist art, namely Arcady Plastov, Sergei Gerasimov, Alexander Deineka, Yuri Pimenov, George Nyssky, Isaac Brodsky and others.
