Any art fan will be impressed not only by the works on display here, but the venue as well. The 2,300-m2 tobacco factory, built in a regionalist style in the 1920s, is now home to centuries' worth of Russian art - and so much more.

His son was more grounded in physical reality, with a signature graphic sensibility which made him a household name in the 1900s.
