ZELPHIRA TREGULOVA, HEAD, TRETYAKOV GALLERY:

 - We wanted to bring the best paintings from the collection of Tretyakov Gallery. For us, it is very important to show the works of the last century instead of the works of 19th century. Therefore, two thirds of these 50 paintings are from the permanent exposition of the Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val and we also want to introduce the works of Moscow School of Painting.
