The project is timed to coincide with the anniversary of the famous Moscow collector Ivan Evgenievich Tsvetkov (1845–1917), the founder of a private art gallery. His collection included approximately 2,000 works to represent mainly everyday genre scenes, landscapes, views of old Moscow and other towns, and self-portraits of artists.
Between the years 1898–1901 I. E. Tsvetkov built a two-story mansion for his collection on the Prechistenskaya Embankment, not far from the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, overlooking the Kremlin and the Tretyakov Gallery. The appearance of the facades and the interior were styled on an old Russian tower based onthe drawings and instructions of the artist V. M. Vasnetsov, a friend of Tsvetkov. Since 1909, Tsvetkov’s collection had been open to visitors in this “treasure house”. Most of the collection was transferred to the Tretyakov Gallery after the gallery was closed in 1926.
