Sukachev (Lenin St., 5) the grand opening of the exhibition "Bequeathed to the Descendants" dedicated to the 170th anniversary of Vladimir Platonovich Sukachev - the creator of the first art gallery in Siberia will take place.

This is a unique opportunity for the audience to appreciate the artistic integrity of the collection and the significance of the personality of the largest philanthropist and philanthropist of Siberia.
The exhibition exposition is supplemented by numerous archival materials of the Sukachev family, as well as portraits of contemporaries. On the opening day, for the first time after a long restoration, four copies from outstanding works of Western European artists will be presented - “The Man” by Guido Reni, “Cleopatra” (unknown artist), “Judith with the Head of Holofernes” by Cristofano Allori and “The Old Woman with the Chicken” by Murillo Sukachev in museums in Europe specifically for Irkutsk.
