Heritage Gallery was founded by art critic and collector Kristina Krasnyanskaya. Since 2008 the gallery has been located in the historic heart of Moscow on Petrovka Street, where for 10 years it has been hosting an active exhibition schedule, and organising master classes, lectures, round tables, and dinners for collectors. Starting out as a gallery specializing in art of the first wave Russian diaspora, it has since then expanded its scope and is presenting Russian art from the first half of the 20th century, as well as modern and contemporary art. Since 2011 the gallery has been developing new directions such as collectible design with an emphasis on Soviet design of 1920s-1980s. Gallery released book “From Constructivism to Modernism”, the first fundamental research on the history of Soviet design including the period 1920-1980, together with the Swiss publishing house Sheidegger & Spiess in 2019. This book is a guide to the history of design in the USSR, with a focus on furniture and architecture, brings together unique archival documents, as well as the funds of three leading museums owning the avant-garde collection (Museum of Modernism. Kostaki Collection (Thessaloniki), Theater Museum named after A.A. Bakhrushin, State Museum of Architecture named after A.V. Shchusev). Many materials were published for the first time.
