This is one of the leading art museums in the region. Its collections include outstanding examples of Armenian, Russian and European art. Altogether the museum numbers more than 20,000 works of painting, sculpture and graphic and applied art in its collections, with more than 3000 of which are constantly exhibited. The section on Armenian art is the richest and covers a period from the 7th century to the present day. The oldest objects which have come down to us are frescoes from the churches in Aruch and Lmbat. The murals in the churches of Gregory the Illuminator in Ani, and of the Haghpat, Tatev and Akhtalin monasteries belong to a later date (10th-14th centuries). Guests of the Armenian capital have the opportunity to see here the wonderful canvases by Aivazovsky, the well-known seascape painter, many works of Sarian, a painter of highly original and vivid style, and other eminent Armenian artists. The rich collection of works by brilliant painters of the 18th century – Borovikovsky, Venetsianov, Levitsky, Argunov, Tropinin, and of the 19th century – Bryullov, Vereshchagin, Ghe, Levitan, Vrubel, Kiprensky, Korovin, Kuindzhi, Polenov, Repin, Shishkin, Perov and others of modern period represent the section of Russian art. In the section of West-European art there are canvases by Rubens, Van Dyck, Jordaens, Th. Rousseau, Coubert and many other masters
