KGallery was founded in St. Petersburg in 2005. The gallery’s collection is based on the largest private collection of Russian and Soviet art, which began to take shape in the mid-1980s of the 20th century.

The gallery's collection includes masterpieces of Russian art of the 19th-20th centuries, ranging from academic art of the mid-19th century, Wanderers, artists of the Silver Age, avant-garde, dozens of paintings by the largest masters of the Soviet period, as well as a unique collection of propaganda porcelain from the 1920s and 1930s.

Over the history of the gallery's work, exhibitions of major Russian artists, such as Boris Grigoriev, Boris Kustodiev, Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin, Kazimir Malevich, Konstantin Somov, have been held with great success. Separate cycles were devoted to artistic associations of the twentieth century - the group "Eleven", the artists of Arefevsky circle.
