The National Gallery also displays a very important painting "Wedding in Kakheti" - with this painting starts the history of collecting the biggest museum collection of Niko Pirosmanashvili's paintings. In 1916, at the Georgian Artists Union, after the meeting organized by Dimitri Shevardnadze, a small amount of money was donated to Niko Pirosmanashvili. With this money, in several days, Pirosmani painted "Wedding in Kakheti" and brought the painting to the Georgian Artists Union.
