For the first time the exhibition sufficiently fully presents the most aesthetic valuable collections of the works by folk masters from the collection of the Russian Museum and clearly reflects the contribution of each collector in the treasury of Russian art. The exposition includes the art works from the collections of N. Shabelskaya, S. Davydova, N. Lihachev, A. Polovtsov, F. Pliushkin, the artists N. Dmitriev-Orenburgsky, V. Lebedev and the other Russian collectors. There are presented the unique samples of wood carving, wooden and clay toy, embroidery, lacquer miniature and the other forms of folk art from the Russian greatest art centers (Palech, Giostovo, Dymkovskaya Sloboda, Bogorodskoye, Velikiy Ustiug, Sergiev Posad and the others).

The exhibition presents not only the individual passions of the owners of the folk art works but also the main tendencies of gathering in Russia in the 19th - 20th centuries.
