Museum of Russian Impressionism

In 2013, Avesta Group’s skills were implemented to create the first museum in Russia dedicated to the history of the Russian Impressionists.

 

A Unique Tribute to the Russian Impressionism

Thanks to the beautiful idea of the private collector Boris Mints, Moscow becomes the home to a world-class new cultural facility dedicated to Russian impressionism. The Museum of Russian Impressionism opened in May 2016 on the site of the former Bolshevik Factory. The Museum is devoted entirely to the interpretation and celebration of the unique Russian Impressionist style of modern art. The Museum promotes a higher level of understanding and appreciation of Russian Impressionism.

 

An Heritage Site Enhanced by Architecture

The Bolshevik Factory has a unique history and is a significant landmark in the city. It was founded in 1855 by Adolf Sioux, a French industrialist and entrepreneur, and was the first building in Moscow with electric light. Its refurbishment returned one the city's most interesting historic buildings into effective re-use as a world-class art centre. The new building, designed by the architect John McAslan, takes its form from the geometry and location of an existing circular storage building within the original Bolshevik Factory. The relationship of the building to the surrounding landscape is a fundamental part of its design. It is an essential destination within the master plan, and the visitor's journey to it through the gardens has been conceived as part of the gallery experience.
