Institute of Russian Realist Art

The Institute of Russian Realist Art (IRRA) is a private institution which brings back the public and social traditions of Russian artistic patronage. The IRRA museum and exhibition centre was opened on December 1, 2011 in one of the old buildings of the former cotton-printing factory built in the "Zamoskvorechye" district of Moscow at the end of the 19th century. The IRRA art collection is widely regarded as one of the best collections of the Russian realist school of painting of the 20th century. Three floors of exhibition space totaling over 4,500 square meters offer approximately 500 works of Russian and Soviet art.

The halls of the third floor display one of the most important sections of the museum collection, Soviet art from the first half of the 20th century, including works by outstanding figures such as Arkady Plastov, Sergey Gerasimov, Alexander Deineka, Yury Pimenov, Georgy Nissky, Isaak Brodsky and other painters.
