History of the Collection

Printer-friendly versionОтправить другу по почте

Before the creation of the Art Gallery in 1988 there was no an art museum in the city, nor was there any systematic planning of acquisitions. The exception was the Regional History and Art Museum, which had collected the works of Soviet artists, including the Kaliningrad painters, both professional and amateur.

For the opening of the Art Gallery, the Museum had donated to it part of its collection of Soviet artists. The donation included the works of Kaliningrad painters who in 1950 established the Kaliningrad branch of the Union of Russian Artists.

During twenty-four years the Kaliningrad Art Gallery has gathered a unique collection of paintings, graphic works, sculptures and decorative art pieces numbering at present about 13,000 units. The core of the collection now comprises the works of local and foreign artists of the second part of the 20th century, representing a great variety of art styles. The works from the 18th through the first half of the 20th century can also be found in our holdings.

From 1990, the Art Gallery has been holding large-scale international exhibitions and art contests for Russian and overseas artists: the Baltic States Biennale of Graphic Art Kaliningrad-Koenigsberg – 1990–2011 (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Sweden). The best work from these exhibitions replenish the Gallery‘s holdings.
