Nice Russian paintings Apr 06, 2011
While the building was once a palace, the interior now functions as an art gallery for visitors. The paintings are spread over a couple of floors and are well worth a good look. The ones that I particularly liked were ones from the Russian orthodox faith. Religious paintings were often covered with semi precious metal work. For example, you would see a painted picture of Madonna and Christ. But on top of the canvas would be a metal frame almost, which gave the figures a halo or some of their clothing and forth. It was a great and unique combination. The rest of the art is fairly standard stuff for a museum. Overall, a very nice visit and I’m glad I came here.
