      collection in Moscow, Russia, of ancient and medieval art and western European painting, sculpture, and graphic arts. It was founded in the 1770s at Moscow University. Especially noteworthy are its holdings of French art from the late 19th and early 20th centuries gathered by the Russian collectors S.I. Shchukin and I.A. Morozov.

      The museum is in a Neoclassical-style building dating from 1812.
