Portrait of Pavel Tretyakov

llya Repin, 1883

"Arguably the greatest-ever collector of Russian art, Pavel Tretyakov initially collected European works before specializing in paintings by Russian artists. A wealthy merchant and industrialist, he made a fortune from textiles and spent much of it on his art collection. Almost from the very beginning, his patronage was guided by his ultimate aim of establishing a national museum of art."
