Apollinariy Vasnetsov was the younger brother of the Russian painter Viktor Vasnetsov (1848-1926), and studied under him at the beginning of his own painting career. Like Viktor, Apollinariy Vasnetsov became a member of the so-called 'Wanderers' as well as an Academician, establishing himself as a landscape painter with a special interest in the Russian landscape. However, Vasnetsov also worked as a scientist, and as a historian of Moscow.
The Apollinariy Vasnetsov Memorial Flat was Vasnetsov's home between 1903-1933, and became a meeting place for Moscow's creative and cultural intellectuals. Now restored and open to the public, it hosts lectures, exhibitions, educational programmes and literary and musical events.
