Photo and description
The house-museum of the outstanding Russian artist Pavel Varfolomeevich Kuznetsov (1878-1968) was opened on January 11, 2001. In this house, the artist was born and matured into the family of a craftsman-icon painter. The location of the house made it possible for the young talent to see the blossoming gardens that began on the northern slope of Sokolovaya Gora and descended to the lowland, to the Volga River, which, after many years, Kuznetsov will write in his autobiography. Petrov-Vodkin and Saryan stayed in the big house, Saratov artists Utkin, Matveev and Karev visited their young colleague many times.
The manor was built at the end of the nineteenth century. The household plot and the house as an example of housing for representatives of the bourgeois class of Saratov at that time belonged to the artist's parents - the Kuznetsovs: Bartholomew Fyodorovich and Evdokia Illarionovna. By the end of the twentieth century, only rickety walls remained from the gradually decaying house. In 1988, the dilapidated building was transferred to the Radishchev Museum for reconstruction and the foundation of a house-museum, which is a center for popularizing the artist's work.
The house-museum is located on the very slope of the Glebuchev ravine and has a stepped structure - from the side of the ravine it has three levels: a basement, a floor and an attic, and from the side of Oktyabrskaya Street it is perceived as two-story. The historical wing and the house reconstructed to its original appearance have survived to this day. Today the estate of P.V. Kuznetsov is a branch of the Radishchev Art Museum, open to visitors, lovers of beauty.
