Russian Art Museum - MUSEO RUSO
The Collection of St Petersburg - The Russian Museum in Malaga (Colección del Museo Ruso) is a 2,300m2 space in the old tobacco factory, known as Tabacalera and dating from the 1920s.
The museum houses 100 pieces dating from the 15th to 20th centuries specially selected for Málaga, as well as two temporary exhibitions each year. The works come from the Russian State Museum's collection in St Petersburg covering every period of Russian art. This is the first museum to house paintings from the museum in Russia.
Opened in early 2015, it is the latest of Malaga's impressive selection of museums, it the Automobile Museum is also located in the Tabacalera building which is one km west of the city center. Received 48 thousand visitors in the first three months.
Works chosen for the first year range from icons inspired by the Byzantine tradition to the socialist realism of the Soviet era: an impressive range of pieces from the smallest up to monumental pieces.
These works represent the rich Russian artistic legacy over the past few centuries, with worldwide and well-known names of the Russian and Soviet art, such as Repin, Kandinsky, Tatlin, Rodchenko and Chagall.
You can enjoy guided tours, film screenings and concerts themed around the great wealth of Russian art: from the orthodox devotion of icons with a gold background, to the middle-class tradition of portrait and landscape, to the great upheavals of the cubist, cubist-futuristic and constructivist avant-gardes, and the 20th-century message of socialist realism.
The museum's permanent exhibition is divided into nine thematic areas: old Russian art, the 18th century, romanticism in Russia, realism, realism with Russian themes, the movement of "World of Art" and neoprimitivism, the avant-garde, Socialist Realism and art after the death of Stalin.
