The Presidium and the exhibitions halls of the Russian Academy of Arts are located in the building well-known in Moscow as Morozov's Mansion. Its basis is the main house of city estate dated by the 18th and 19th centuries. The front staircase was decorated with the panel by P.Bonnard. M.Denis painted several big panels - "The Story of Psyche" for the White Hall.
The ground floor was given to Russian painters - M.Vrubel, I.Levitan, V.Vasnetsov. Rather well were demonstrated the works by K.Korovin, A.Golovin, M.Larionov and N.Goncharova and others.
With the great help of Zurab Tsereteli, the Russian Academy President, in the late 1990s the full restoration of the main building was conducted. Mansion front and historic interiors were restored as well.
Numerous exhibitions are held here, in the suite of rooms in the first floor. The leading masters changing each other expose their best pieces. Sometime one can visit the exposition where the whole artistic dynasties are presented or the special exhibitions presenting young generation. Everything here reflects the current processes and main trends of domestic and foreign art
