The Museum of Disappeared Paintings Opened in Russia

Lost masterpieces by Ivan Aivazovsky, Ilya Repin, Arkhip Kuindzhi and other renowned Russian artists are displayed here.

      A unique project - the Museum of Disappeared Paintings – has been launched by RIA Novosti in cooperation with the State Russian Museum. It contains VR reconstructions of famous Russian artworks that were stolen, burned, destroyed or vanished in combats.

      The museum exposition includes paintings by Vasily Vereshchagin, Konstantin Korovin, Arkhip Kuindzhi, Apollinarius Vasnetsov, Isaac Levitan, Ilya Repin, and other great Russian artists. In addition, there are two disappeared icons and a unique wooden church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Kondopoga, which burned down in 2018.

      Visitors to the virtual museum have a unique opportunity to not only see the lost masterpieces, but also interact with them. It can be about animating the painting, hearing the story of its creation.

      Officially, the Museum of Disappeared Paintings will be introduced at the St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum.

      But you can already get into it by downloading the RIA.Lab application on your phone.
