National Gallery of Armenia
Location : Republic Square of Yerevan The
floors above the National History Museum contain the National Picture Gallery.
Start by taking the elevator to the top, then descend through the huge
collection of Russian, Armenian, and European works, some of the latter copies
or else spoils of WWII divided among the various Soviet republics. In regard to
the amount of artistic treasures the national art gallery of Armenia is
considered one of the best museums in the former Soviet Union, founded in 1921
the national art museum of Armenia originally counted five divisions including
one on arts which in 1931 was re-modeled into an art gallery of its own. The
national art gallery enriched its collection rapidly thanks to government
procurements and donations. Currently its collection exceeds 19,000 specimens
shown in the Russian, Armenian and West-European divisions of paintings,
sculptures, graphic and applied arts. The old Armenian subdivision owns the
works of famous Armenian artists of the early mediaeval and the succeeding
periods. The section of the Armenian Middle Ages exhibits imitations of canvases
by the miniaturists Toros Roslin, Sarkis Pitsak, Grigor Tatevatsi and others. A
number of rare samples of mural painting, preserved in the monasteries and
churches of Tatev and Kaghpat, have been transferred to the gallery along with
specimens of the applied arts. Armenian painting of modern times is represented
by the productions of Hakop Hovnatanian, a magnificent adept of portrait
painting of the past century, his contemporary Stepanos Ner-cissian, the
immortal sea-scapist Hovhannes Ayvazovsky, the gorgeous landscapes of Gevork
Bashinjaghian, the refined multi-genre art of Vartkes Soureniants, the colourful
canvases of Yeghishe Tadevossian and Panos Terlemezian, Edgar Shahin's wonderful
etchings pervaded with deep-souled feelings, Hakop Gyurjian's exalted, highly
expressive sculptures, etc. The works of the 20th century classical artists, who
have been the trailblazers of Soviet Armenian art, are also shown in monographic
presentation. The list includes such past-masters of Armenian painting as Step
an Aghajanian, Sedrak Arakelian, Hakop Kojoyan. Martiros Sarian, Gabriel
Gyurjian who have a well-merited representation in the art gallery. National
tradition has always been alive in Armenian painting; moreover, it has been
enriched with novel, socialist content by such masters of the chisel and the
brush as Yervand Kochar, Ara Sarldssian, Souren Stepanian, Nikoghayos
Nikoghossian, Aytsemik Urartu, Hovhannes Zardarian, Grigor Khanjian, Edward
Issafoekian, Sedrak Rashmaj-ian, Marism Aslamazian and those of the next
generation: the artists Minas Avetissian, Hakop Hakopian, Lavinia
Bazhbeuk-Melikian, Sarkis Mouradian. Arpenik Nalbandian, Mekertich Kamal-ian,
Rafik Atoyan, Anatoly Papian, Ashot Melkonian, Robert Elibekian, Ara Shiraz and
many more. The history of the Armenian people shaped a peculiar chapter also in
Armenian painting. The art of the Armenians living abroad develops parallel to
the basic trend in the national art. Exposed to view in the gallery are the best
hangings of such popular artists of the Armenian Diaspora as Carzou, Jansem, R.
Jeranian, J. Orakian, Armis, Tirid, S. Khachaturian, G. Shiltian, Khoren
Der-Harootian, A. Zorian, G. Avakian, A. Tadossian, P. Kirakossian and others.
Armenian national applied art is also displayed in profusion. The division of
Russian art, rich and varied, has placed on show the works of a great many
famous Russian artists. The collection of Russian art in the museum was enriched
thanks to the transfer of the stocks of the former Lazarian College and
donations from the museums of Moscow and Leningrad. Thus the art gallery of
Armenia demonstrates the pieces of art by brilliant Russian artists from the end
of the 18th century through Soviet times. Representing Russian classical art
are: I. Argunov, D. Levitsky, V. Tropinin, V. Vereshchagin, I. Repin, I.
Shishkin, A. Kouinji, I. Levitan, V. Surikov, V. Serov. K. Korovin, M. Vrubel,
A. Golovina and others. Russian Soviet art claims a large portion of its own in
the gallery. Most of the exhibited artists embarked on their career before the
October Revolution, however, their art continued to record progress in Soviet
times. Their names are A. Golubkina, S. Konenkoy, Nesterov, I. Mashkov, A.
Kuprin, P. Konchalovsky, K. Petrov-Vodkin, P. Falk, I. Tyrsa and many more. In
the post-October period the following artists have achieved renown I. Shadr, Z.
Serebryakov, S. Gerasimov, V. Lebedev, P. Korin, A. Plastov, A. Deineka, M.
Manizer et al. Shelved in the Russian division is the collection of 17th—19th
century icons and a rich exposition in 18th—19th century porcelain. Apart from
specimens of the applied arts the collection of West-European art dismays the
works of four major national schools from the 14th to the 19th centuries:
Italian, Flemish, Dutch and French. Representing the Italian school are the
