Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts

Works of art ranging from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, a golden trove with treasures from the 8th to 19th centuries, medieval coins, King Tamar’s golden cross, an ancient icon of the Saviour, works of medieval Georgian architecture, monumental paintings and mosaics, sculptures, wood engravings, iconography…

This is just a small list of the wonders you’ll behold at the Museum of Fine Arts in Tbilisi. Named for the influential academic Shalva Amiranashvili, the Museum of Fine Arts is located in a historic 1835 building designed by Swiss architect Giuseppe Bernardazzi. It is a very rare example of late classicism and has been an immovable monument since 2007.

The museum itself was founded in 1920 as an important treasury of cultural heritage. Today, it safeguards more than 140,000 objects. Popular exhibits include a collection of 152 paintings by the Georgian artist Niko Pirosmani, as well as works by Lucas Cranach, Jean Chardin, Mikhail Vrubel, and Ivan Aivazovsky.
