What to expect

Visit the General Staff Building of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. Admire a site that houses one of the best exhibitions dedicated to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism as well as topical contemporary art and an excellent collection of French paintings from the late 19th - early 20th centuries.

With the included audio tour app you will enjoy total immersion in the art and retrace the evolution of painting since the end of the 19th century, from Impressionism to Cubism. You will learn how the new movements in painting emerged, what difficulties the founding artists of Impressionism - Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro and Auguste Renoir - faced, and, of course, examine their paintings in detail.

The audio tour includes more than 50 of the brightest and most famous paintings from the exposition of General Staff. While admiring them, you will learn to distinguish Impressionism from Post-impressionism, and discover the meaning the artists hid in their works.

Walking from hall to hall, you will find answers to the questions: Why are there so many still lifes with apples in the hall of Paul Cézanne? How to understand the riot of colors in Kandinsky's work? Who are the Neo-Impressionists? And much more!
