Drawing and water-colour



The collection of drawings and watercolours made in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries, some 100,000 works, is the largest and fullest in the world. In March 1898 the museum opened its first exhibition, showing drawings and water-colours presented by the Hermitage and the Academy of Arts.The collection was enlarged in the early 1910s by acquisitions from exhibitions, artists' studios and collectors. In the years following the revolution, works poured into the collection from palaces, mansions and leading collectors. Some 6,000 study drawings entered the museum from the Academy of Arts in the 1920s and early 1930s. The following years saw entire collections donated to the museum, as well as acquisitions of works made over various periods.
