Национальный художественный музей Республики БеларусьThe National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus (Belorussian: Нацыянальны мастацкі музей Рэспублікі Беларусь) is a museum in Minsk, Belarus. It is the largest museum in the country. More than twenty seven thousand works of art - creating twenty miscellaneous collections and comprising two main representative ones: the one of national art and the other of monuments of art of the countries and nations of the world - can be found on exposition, at the branches of the Museum and its depositories.

The Museum’s official history begins on January, 24 in 1939 when under the Resolution of the Council of People's Commissars of Belarus the State Art Gallery has been created in Minsk.

At the beginning of 1941 the State Art Gallery’s funds and stocks had already numbered nearly 2711 art works out of which four hundred were on exhibition. A long-term work on the description and study of each monument as well as on the creation of the museum collection’s catalogue was to be done. The fate of the whole collection was tragically unfavorable during the first days of the Great Patriotic War. In a short time it would disappear without even leaving a trace.

After the War merely a small part of the works of art was returned, mainly those which before the War had been at the exhibitions in Russia. In spite of the postwar devastation, when Minsk lay in ruins, the Government of Belarus allocated considerable sums of money for purchasing works of art for the Gallery. It was already in August 1945 when the canvases by Boris Kustodiev, Vasily Polenov, Karl Briullov and Isaak Levitan were obtained.

The construction of the new building of the State Art Gallery with the ten spacious halls, occupying two floors and a large gallery, was finished in 1957.

In 1957 the State Art Museum of the BSSR moved into this new magnificent building, designed by Mikhail Baklanov. The building was decorated with allegorical sculptures named Art, Sculpture and Fame. This building became one of the first museum buildings in the history of the Soviet architecture.

In those years the Museum’s collection had already reached the pre-war level and included about three thousand works of Russian, Soviet and Belorussian art.

The period of the 1970s and the early 1980s was a peak of the Museum’s exhibition activity. The collection of the Belorussian modern painting and graphic arts were taken from the Museum’s funds for exhibitions abroad.

In the 1970s-1990s the museum turned into a huge complex incorporating five branches, including the famous castles in Mir and Golshany.

Since 1993 the Museum has been called the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus.

On banknote is a part of the painting by Belarus painter Ivan Khrutsky, finished in 1838 - "The Portrait of an Unknown Woman with Fruits and Flowers" ("Портрет неизвестной с цветами и фруктами"). Size: 80,2 х 112 см. Oil, canvas. On painting, presumably, is his wife.

In "Portrait of an Unknown Woman with Fruits and Flowers" 1838 Ivan Khrutsky painted the same model as in the earlier "Portrait of an unknown lady" In this painting still life prevails over the image of man. The compositional center of the picture - beautiful lilies and roses in a jug, grapes and peaches in a vase. The artist has created a festive harmony of lyrical image of a strange world, and generous gifts of nature. Celebrations adds a bright spot red shawl (red shawl can be seen on all the other "Portrait of an unknown fruit" Khrutsky). In this canvas was a characteristic tendency for academic artist to rigorous writing out the details, the illusory transfer of material objects: it is enough to look at the light translucent handkerchief around his neck woman, or a glass and pitcher, standing on the tray. For Khrutsky was characteristic smooth brushwork, which is clearly visible on the canvas.

Ivan Khrutsky was the eldest of six children in the family priest of the Uniate Usayi. Secondary education is the future artist was in the 1820s in the Polotsk top public-relations school. After Ivan Khrutsky moved to St. Petersburg and entered an auditor at the Academy of Arts. In 1839 he received the title of academician Khrutsky "for excellent works in portrait, landscape, and especially in the art of fruits and vegetables."

Although Ivan Khrutsky visited perspective painting class under the guidance of Maxim Nikiforovich Vorobiev and painted landscapes, but he became famous precisely because of his still lifes. ( .rus).
