We continue the traditions of the Imperial Society for the Encouragement of the Arts, established in 1820 to promote the development of fine arts, the dissemination of knowledge related to art, and the education of artists and sculptors.

The main direction of our activity is the preservation and popularization of the Russian cultural heritage through auctions and exhibitions. The gallery works both with the works of Soviet artists of the classical school of painting, and with the creative heritage of the "alternative aesthetics" of the 1960s and 1970s, is engaged in the implementation of antique and modern painting.

Educational and philanthropic activities are an important part of our work. The gallery organizes exhibitions in St. Petersburg and other Russian cities in order to support and promote the creativity of artists.

We are open to cooperation with artists and collectors and are glad to see everyone who loves art, is interested in it, is ready and wants to learn new things.

"Our goal is to preserve traditions, to talk about the spiritual, about the light!" - Lyudmila Anatolyevna Ermolina, founder and director of the Imperial Society for the Encouragement of the Arts Foundation.
