Marble Palace Collections

As well as hosting some of the most interesting of the State Russian Museum's temporary exhibitions, the Marble Palace also contains two permanent collections.

One contains the works donated to the Russian Museum in the 1990s by the Rzhevskiy brothers, Yakov and Iosef, who managed to build a remarkable collection of late 19th and early 20th century art by painters such as Mikhail Nesterov, Mstislav Dobuzhinsky, and Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin. Their collection, which contains 503 pieces, includes paintings, drawings, and a wealth of applied art, including extensive collections of porcelain and antique clocks.

The other permanent collection in the Marble Palace is The Ludwig Museum at the Russian Museum, which draws on the resources of the renowned Ludwig Museum in Cologne, and was established by Peter and Irene Ludwig in 1995 to help foster an understanding of later 20th century art among a Russian audience. Using the 118 works presented to the museum by the Ludwigs, including pieces by some of the biggest names in modern art, the collection strives to present as broad a range of styles and media as possible in the limited space.
