At a historical site in Kazan (before the revolution it was called Dogs Lane, later the name changed to Nekrasov street in 1921) in 1850, a Kazan Philistine, Irina Prokopievna Borisova, built a two-story brick house. In the last decade of the Soviet period it was home to the local
Bureau of Technical Inventory but in the late 90s it was abandoned and deteriorated.
The idea of restoring the historical building was born after Anna Afanasyeva compiled a family tree. Anna is a descendant of Irina Prokopyevna on her mother’s side. She is also a creative person and a member of the Creative Union of Artists of Russia.
The family passion for art lets the house tell its part of the story of architecture and art history of the Tatarstan Republic.
That’s how the ancient, but at the same time modern, Art House Gallery Museum was founded. The gallery collection contains thousands of artworks of about a hundred of famous Tatarstan artists and Kazan Feshin College of Fine Arts alumni.
