  • In 1867 Pavel Tretyakov opened the gallery, which presented his collection and the collection of his brother Sergei. Visitors saw 1,276 paintings, 471 sculptures and 10 pictures by Russian artists, as well as 84 pictures by foreign masters. Pavel Mikhailovich exhibited his collection in his house in Lavrushinsky Lane. From 1872 to 1874 two halls of the museum were built, they were connected with the living part of the house. In 1882, when it was necessary to exhibit the collection of pictures from the Turkestan collection, 6 new rooms were added. Additional facilities also appeared in 1885 and 1892. 1892 was a landmark for the museum, that year Pavel Tretyakov gave his collections as a gift to the city of Moscow. Then in 1887 the collection included paintings, 518 drawings and sculptures by Russian artists of the 18-19th centuries, as well as the works by Western European masters. A year later, the official opening of the Moscow City Gallery of Pavel and Sergei Tretyakov took place. After the death of Pavel Tretyakov in 1898, his work was continued by other patrons.
  • In the years of 1902-1904 under the supervision of A. Kalmykov V. M. Vasnetsov built the famous facade, which became the emblem of the Tretyakov Gallery. The facades of the building were designed by the architect V. Bashirov with the drawings by the artist V. Vasnetsov. On April 2, 1913 Igor Emmanuilovich Grabar, an artist, restorer and arts critic, was elected a trustee of the museum,. Thanks to him, the Tretyakov Gallery was established by the European type - in chronological order. In December 1913, the museum was opened to visitors. After the revolution in 1918, the museum was renamed the State Tretyakov Gallery and was declared state property of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic. I. Grabar became the director of the gallery. A great contribution to the development of the museum, including the expansion and equipping, was made by the architect A.V. Schusev. During the war, most of the exhibits were evacuated to Novosibirsk. The building itself was damaged by bombing. On the 100th anniversary of the museum in 1956, the collection included over 35,000 works of art. Ju. K. Korolev, the museum's director from 1980 to 1992, contributed much to the expansion of the museum. In 1989 a new engineering building was built, which housed a conference hall, a data processing centre, children's studio and exhibition halls. After the reconstruction of the museum the Tretyakov Gallery ensemble included the architectural monument of the XVIIth century - the church of St. Nicholas in Tolmachi. It was restored, sanctified and became the home church of the museum.
