The Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecturewas one of the largest educational institutions in Russia. The school was formed by a 1865 merger of a private art college, established in Moscow in 1832, and the Palace School of Architecture, established in 1749 by Dmitry Ukhtomsky. By the end of 19th century, it tied with the state-run St. Petersburg Academy of Arts for the title of the largest art school in the country. In the 20th century, art and architecture separated again, into Surikov Art Institute in Moscow (Московский Художественный Институт имени Сурикова), and Moscow Architectural Institute (Московский Архитектурный Институт); the latter occupies historical School buildings in Rozhdestvenka Street.
