Naive art is an extremely diverse, experimental and fascinating sphere. This term is usually attributed to visual art created by self-taught artists. It is tightly bound with folk art, camp and contemporary art practices. Our museum focuses mainly on Soviet and contemporary Russian artists but also engages in collaborations with artists from different countries and continents. We also devote a lot of attention to outsider art. Another field of interest is Russian lubok: these popular printed pictures got widespread in Russia in the end of 17th century and existed till the beginning of 20th century. Lubok prints was sold at the funfairs at a cheap price (1–1,5 kopecks per print) and were available for wealthy peasants. Luboks were very popular among the common people.

Museum traces its history back to 1998 when Vladimir Grozin, an admirer of naive art, created the Moscow Naive Art Museum. It was situated in the unique Art Nouveau cottage (built in 1907) that nowadays still hosts museum’s temporary exhibitions (the “Dacha” Center). In 2015 the museum consolidated with the Moscow Museum of Folk Graphics and was rebranded as the Museum of Russian Lubok and Naive Art. 

Museum collection includes 4847 items (1551 paintings, 3079 graphic drawings, 137 sculptures and 80 items of arts and crafts). We are proud to have in our collection the works of such remarkable artists as Pavel leonov, Alexander Lobanov, Ekaterina Medvedeva, Anna Dikarskaya, Vassily Romanenkov, Vladimir Zaznobin and many others. 

The museum organizes Moscow International Festival of Naive and Outsider Art «Festnaive» (an exhibition and a scientific conference held once every three years), various personal and group exhibitions, research and publishing projects. Museum works as a methodological center for regional museums of folk and naive art.
