15-Chekov-PA

Russia and the Arts is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a selection of masterpieces on loan from the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.

The exhibition will focus on the great writers, artists, composers and patrons, including Tolstoy, Chekhov and Dostoevsky, whose achievements helped develop an extraordinary and rich cultural scene in Russia between 1867 and 1914.

Moscow is to send figures such as Tolstoy, Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky and London will reciprocate with Shakespeare, Mary Wollstonecraft and Thomas Carlyle in an unprecedented exchange of some of Russia and the UK’s greatest portraits.
