The Pavel Tretyakov Award Turns 10
The Tretyakov Gallery celebrated this anniversary, a major event for our museum community, at its conference centre on December 21 2015.
During the decade of its existence, the Pavel Tretyakov Award has been bestowed on 30 individuals whose lives have all been inextricably linked to this very museum, and who revere the name of Pavel Tretyakov.
