While in Moscow in May/June of this year, Sharon Tennison's citizen diplomacy group took some time out from meetings to visit the famed Moscow Tretyakov Gallery. It houses a thousand years of magnificent Russian art. The collection began in 1856 when a wealthy Moscow merchant, Pavel Tretyakov, developed a passion for collecting art for himself and his family. Fortunate for us and the world, in his later years he turned his home, properties and art collection over to the City of Moscow. Regardless of political systems, this place has been revered and maintained throughout a century and half.
