A collection of his art Department was formed from pieces of art, nationalized in 20-ies of the palaces and estates of the southern Coast of Crimea. So the Museum became the owner of a valuable collection, which included works by Karl Briullov, Ivan Aivazovsky, Ivan Shishkin, Isaak Levitan, Valentine Serov, Western European paintings, porcelains and sculptures.
