Image

Istoria timpurie a Departamentului de Arta Occidentala Europeana se aseamana intrucatva chiar cu istoria Leningradului. Precum Sankt Petersburg a rivalizat cu cele mai somptuoase si luxoase capitale ale Europei, tot asa colectiile de opere de arta Apuseana, colectie inceputa in anul 1764- data oficiala a fondarii Ermitajului, nu a avut nevoie decat de doua decade ca sa ajunga opulenta si varietatea care au plasat-o alaturi de cele mai faimoase colectii europene.
Exponate izolate de arta europeana si-au gasit locul in Rusia in etapele istorice precedente, mai ales in timpul domniei lui Petru cel Mare dar aparitia colectiilor consistente a inceput propriu-zis in a doua jumatate a secolului al optsprezecelea.
