Mayakovsky's Paraphernalia Lost from the Poets Museum
Vladimir Mayakovsky

More than 50 exhibits have gone from Mayakovsky's Museum in Moscow.

      The disappearance of the museum things was found after two inspections carried out by the Ministry of Culture. Among the exhibits gone there were very valuable personal belongings of the poet, in particular, his glasses and a candlestick. Several posters, such as One worker is weak, If you became disabled at work, Window of GROWTH No. 883, are also missing.

      Two of the exhibits were later found abroad and returned to Russia. Other things have been registered as missing. Among the disappeared materials there were also works by the artist Alexander Rodchenko.

      Mayakovsky's Museum is located in Lubyanka Street, in the house where the poet once lived. Carefully gathered in due time funds total about 50 thousand subjects, the biggest part of which makes a library: books, newspapers and other materials.

      It is supposed that the loss was discovered in 2007 and 2009, but wasn't reported earlier. Recently it has become known that Mayakovsky's Museum is planned to be closed for repair, which has caused museum workers’ fears about further safety of the exposition.
