The official history of the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus began in 1939 when the State Art Gallery was opened in Minsk. The basis of its collection was created by the works of art taken from the regional museums of Belarus, from gentry's mansions and palaces. Some works were presented by large Russian museums. But the first collection of the museum was lost during World War II. In 1945 the museum began to create its collection from the beginning. Works of art were purchased from collectors and presented by artists. Already in the 1970-s the museum occupied a prominent place among art museums of the Soviet Union.
Today the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus is the largest museum in the country. Its funds include more that 30 thousand works of art making up the collections of Belarusian, Russian, Western European and Oriental art. The museum has begun the construction of a new exhibition centre. So it will be possible to exhibit more collections at once.
The stamp project was prepared in cooperation with the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus.
