Tarquin and Lucretia for the First Time in Pushkin Museum

The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow will be displaying for the first time the painting Tarquin and Lucretia by the great Flemish painter Peter Rubens.
      After the victory over fascists the painting was exported from Germany to the USSR as a war trophy.
      The owners of the canvass in Russia were non-connoisseurs who had no idea of the paintings great value and for decades it was kept in a roll in a usual Moscow flat. The painting needed serious restoration. Upon restoration the painting has been returned to the world heritage and can be seen by numerous visitors of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts.
      The painting was first exhibited in Russia last year, in the Hermitage Museum.
      The famous canvass will be on display in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts till April 30, 2007.
      Address: Hall 11, bldg 12, Volkhonka Street, Moscow
