    This video offers a fascinating tour through the world's largest repository of Russian art, comprising some 400,000 exhibits covering the thousand-year period of Russian history. All types of fine art-paintings, sculpture, graphic art, numismatics, decorative and folk art-are housed within the palatial walls of the Mikhailovsky Palace on Nevsky Prospect in St. Petersburg. The video illustrates some of the collection's most famous art works, including icon-paintings by Andrei Rublev, Brullov's "Last Day of Pompeii," Rasytrelli's statue of Empbress Anna, Repin's "Barge Haulers on the Volga," Natan Altman's portrait of Anna Akhmatova, and K. Malevich's "Black Square."
