Arkhip I. Kuindji Apartment-Museum
The Arkhip I. Kuindju Apartment-Museum is located in the house in Birzhevoi Lane in St.Petersburg which has long been known as Painters’ House because many noted Russian artists – A. Beggrov, E. Volkov, M. Klodt, I. Kramskoi, the Chernetsovs lived in it. The house witnessed the last 13 years of Kuindji’s life and his death in 1910.
Now, in the artist’s studio there is an exposition dedicated to his teaching activity in the Academy of Arts where he served as a professor of landscape painting and head of a workshop from 1894-1897.
The Museum displays paintings by his most talented students such as N. Rerikh, A.Rylov, K. Bogaevski, as well as his students’ diploma works.
