Having become a reference point for Russian culture, the Russian Art Museum in Malaga (Colección del Museo Ruso) takes visitors through an interesting journey through hundreds of works of art in different movements and styles. The collection on display originates from the State Russian Museum, an important gallery founded by Czar Nicholas II in 1895.
La Tabacalera, Malaga's old tobacco factory, houses this impressive exhibition that will deepen your appreciation for the fascinating history of Russian art and its evolving relationship with the European aesthetic. Plus, you'll have an English audioguide walking you through the exhibition, making sure that no details slip through the cracks.
The exhibitions at its Malaga outpost periodically change, but the walls of the museum have seen works from greats like Marc Chagall, Vasili Kandinski, Iliá Repin and Kazimir Malévich.
