23 june 2005—22 august 2005
The decorative frames collection of the Russian Museum counts several thousands exhibits and is one of the best in our country. It started when the first works were acquired to the museum (the Russian Museum of the Emperor Alexander III at that time). The collection represents nearly all the periods of frame industry development in Russia since the first half of the 18th century till nowadays. This first ever held in Russia exhibition of decorative frames will showcase some 100 unique works of art, including what is called "author's frames" (the ones which were created of chosen by painters themselves). Many works of decorative and applied art showcased have never been exhibited before. A catalogue for the exhibition has been published.
