St. Petersburg State Russian Museum to Open Branch in Spanish City of Malaga
Mar 15, 2015

MOSCOW – The State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, the greatest collection of Russian fine art in the world, announced on Tuesday the opening of its first European branch in the Spanish city of Malaga, on March 25.

The permanent branch in southern Spain will contain around 100 Russian paintings, dating between the 15th and the 20th centuries, including works by Valentin Serov, Wassily Kandinsky, and Marc Chagall, according to a statement by the Russian museum.

Malaga’s new State Russian Museum will house three galleries: one for a permanent collection, and two others for rotating exhibits.

The State Russian Museum, which competes with the State Hermitage Museum in the same former capital of Tsarist Russia, opened its doors to public for the first time in 1898 upon orders from the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II, and it includes famous artwork by Russian painters.
