About collection

The heart of the collection of folk art, formed in March 1937, is comprised of the collections of the local Museum of Handicraft and the School of Folk Art, as well as works from the museums of the Baron Stieglitz School of Technical Drawing and the Society for the Protection of the Arts. The new department increased its collection in its early years by acquisitions from exhibitions and artists' studios. Academic expeditions to various parts of the country played an important role in forming the collection.The collection now covers all forms of folk art, including both domestic peasant works and art handicraft.
