Moscow Art Theatre (MAT), an outstanding Russian theatre of theatrical naturalism founded in 1898 by two teachers of dramatic art, Konstantin Stanislavsky and Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko. The Moscow Art Theatre (MAT) differed from the other independent theatres in being a fully professional organization from the beginning and in emphasizing theatrical production rather than neglected plays. In 1909 The Moscow Art Theatre (MAT) performed The Government Inspector on its stage and we prepared scanned historical photos from that play.

The Government Inspector, a farcical drama in five acts by Nikolay Gogol, was originally performed and published as Revizor in 1836. According to D. S. Mirsky, The Government Inspector “is not only supreme in character and dialogue – it is one of the few Russian plays constructed with unerring art from beginning to end.
