Photo: Vova Pomortsev (2009) One of the largest collections of Russian classical painting is kept in Czech museums today. Brought in by Russian émigrés, acquired in the post-revolutionary years, paintings are often stored in museum depositories or private collections, where no one has seen them for decades. Meanwhile, this is the work of the most prominent Russian masters. So, the Czech museums have almost three dozen paintings by Aivazovsky. And in 1933, after the personal exhibition of Philip Malyavin in Prague, many of his paintings were acquired by Czech collectors and remained in the country.The collection of the Náchod Gallery contains the funds of the Slavic Institute of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences, which were transferred to the gallery after its dissolution. Works from the collection are shown in Nakhoda every two years, during the traditional exhibition of Russian art. Nowadays, the exposition in Karlovy Vary is much more representative and voluminous than the usual exhibitions in the Náchod Gallery. The exhibition presents paintings by Bogolyubov, Nesterov, Serov. Beautiful paintings, which, perhaps, the public will see again not soon.Pair portrait Portrait - the realistic genre representing the person existing in reality or group of people.

Another facet of the name of the portrait lies in the outdated word "parsuna" - from the Latin. persona - "person; person".
