MUSEUM OF THE ACADEMY OF ARTS, a science and research museum (17 University Embankment), Russia's oldest art museum, founded by I. I. Shuvalov in 1757 as a collection of samples for the students of drawing and sculpture classes at the Academy of Arts. The initial museum collections included West-European paintings, casts, works made by graduates of the Academy of Arts who earned medals and later became Academy members or professors. In 1862 the museum enlarged its collection by acquiring the collection of Count N. A. Kushelev-Bezborodko. In 1898 a part of its collection was handed over to the Russian Museum. After 1917 a large number of exhibits were transferred to the Hermitage and other museums. The museum occupies the halls of the central building of the Academy of Arts. The exposition features works by А. P. Losenko, I. P. Prokofyev, F. G. Gordeev, F. F. Shchedrin, K. Bryullov, G. I. Skorodumov, А. А. Ivanov, V. D. Polenov, I. E. Repin, V. V. Mate, А. P. Ostroumova-Lebedeva and others, European masters are represented by the works of L. Giordano, F. Algardi, G. Ladzarini and others. The Architecture Department contains designs and drawings of architects and author models of Smolny Convent (made under the guidance of F. B. Rastrelli), the Academy of Arts, St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Stock Exchange Building and other buildings. Shevchenko memorial workshop operates as an independent division of the museum (from 1858 Shevchenko lived and worked in the Academy of Arts where he died in 1861). The museum maintains a number of branches: Repin Penates Mansion and Museum, P. P. Chistyakov House Museum, I. I. Brodsky Apartment Museum, and A. I. Kuindzhi Apartment Museum. The collection numbers over 100,000 items. Annually the museum is visited by up to 35,000 people.
