Ekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts was founded in 1936. It was the year of Sverdlovsk Art Gallery foundation.
In 1909 the Academy filled the funds of the Art department again and some other pictures were got from the Ekaterinburg Association of Amateurs of graceful Arts, which was founded in1895. In 1912 this association organized a great exhibition of Moscow, S.-Petersburg and Ural artists. It was an important step in the filling of the city art collection. Some works were The Sons Portrait by S. Malyutin, The creations of L. Pasternak, L. Turzhanskiy , M. Aladzhanov and of other great artists of Russia. On of the most productive period of filling up the collection of the art department was the time when Soviet power was established on the territory of the Urals and a special commission was organized (1919-1920). Its members were the teachers of the art-industry school S. Erzya, L. Turzhanskiy, I.Slyusarev and the president of the Urals Society of Amateurs of from confiscated Natural Sciences O. Clair. Their task was to choose the best from confiscated pieces for the museum collection. If taking into account what a difficult time was that period in the history of Russia, the period of uncertainty during the Civil War we must say that the activity of the commission was unforgettable help to store great art items. Thanks to the activists scores of new pictures were add to the collection. In April, 1924 the museum got the collection consisted of 600 masterpieces of Russian and foreign masters. In 1926 the museum of the Society was reorganized into the State Museum of the Urals District and at the moment sent the petition to the National Museum Fund to get some more art pieces to fill up the collection once again. That time a great collection of Russian Avant-garde was brought to Sverdlovsk under the initiative of Narkompross and became the base of new exhibition, called All Ways of Art. So, the organization of Sverdlovsk Art Gallery in 1936 made the dream to have a museum, which appeared on the edge of centuries, become true to life. First years of the existence of the Gallery were directed to the expansion of the collection, on one hand, and on the other hand - to introduce different exhibitions. In 1935 the gallery represented the exposition, called The Urals-Kuzbass in painting and in 1944 one more, called The Urals - the Center of Guns Industry, where the artists from Moscow, Cthelyabinsk, Perm, Sverdlovsk and other cities showed their skills.
