The Anna & Yury Mirakov Art Gallery is a private gallery, located in the centre of Moscow. It was opened in January 1999, by Yury Mirakov, a member of the Artists' Unions of Russia and Great Britain.
From the very beginning the Gallery owners have focused on popularizing works of Russian and West European art of the mid-20th century onwards. Over the past years the Mirakov Gallery held many exhibitions of works by recognized masters of both realistic and avant-garde art. The Mirakov Gallery also organizes guest exhibitions, both commercial and charity ones, at various other venues.
In 2003, the Gallery signed a cooperation agreement with the UNESCO Creativity Centre. The main purpose of mutual cooperation is to attract attention of Russian and foreign public, of state and private museums, art unions, foundations, and the media to the realization of jointly developed programmes (art exhibitions, charity auctions, cultural meetings and so on).
The Gallery possesses a considerable collection of art works representing various genres and styles - from realism to avant-garde, from antiques to contemporary painting and sculpture.
The Gallery's framing shop offers a large selection of framing and mat materials for the decoration of paintings, graphics, photos, posters, mirrors and so on.
In 2009 the Studio of Painting and Drawing for adults has opened in the Gallery. Lessons in the studio are conducted by professional artists with long-term pedagogical experience.
