Charity is the provision of selfless help to those who need it. This short definition describes a life principle that goes right from the heart: help not as a must, but as a natural sincere act. Russia has a long history of patronage in the sphere of art and culture.For example, Pavel Tretyakov, the founder of the Tretyakov Gallery said: “My idea from a very young age was to accumulate wealth in order to give it back to society through some useful institutions”. He never refused financial assistance to talented artists. Composer R. Grigoryevich patronized young musicians. I. Aivazovsky, a great painter of Crimean origin, was also engaged in charity. He had his studio in his home town of Feodosia where he brought up young talents.
