The House-Museum’s collection was replenished mainly during 1967-2008. It contains Master’s paintings and graphic works from all periods of his creativity.
Due to the fact that many of his famous works had already been kept in the state funds of Armenia and Russia, therefore private collections appeared to be an important source for the increasing the House-museum’s collection.
The works have been acquired from the private owners and the artist himself. Many works have been also donated to the museum. The collectors A.Azarian (New York), G.Basmadjian (Paris), M.Kaganovitch (Paris), the legendary G.Yanikian, the biologist M.Kireeva (Moscow), the art critic V.Matevosian (Yerevan), the noted violinist and conductor V.Spivakov (Moscow), the artist’s son L.Sarian, the former museum’s director Sh.Khatchatrian and others were among the grantors.
Nowadays the museum’ permanent exposition possesses over 300 works of the artist starting from the first drawings executed by M.Sarian at the age of 16 and ending with the works created during his last years. The exposition is supplemented with the works from the artist’s family collection transferred for temporary holding.From 2009 the memorial fund was also created. It includes the furnishings from the artist’s home, archaeological excavations’ items presented to the artist, as well as photos, representing his pictorial, graphic works and also sculptures.
