Old Russian needlework
1 january 2005—31 january 2005
33 works formed this temporary exhibition. They all come from a collection kept in depositories of the Museum. It is the collection of church needlework, unique for its artistic value and undamaged state. Veils that hanged above icons, shrouds of Christ with embroidery of 'Entombment' and shrouds with images of Russian saints, the founders of cloisters, were showcased at the exhibition. Among them, there were articles made in workshops of tsarizy, grand princesses and boyarynias, as well as articles made with the own hand of tsarizy Irina Godunova, Evdokiya Streshneva (wife of tsar Mikhail Fedorovich), and Maria Miloslavskaya (daughter-in-law of Ivan Grozny).

Pavel Zhukovsky. On the 175th Anniversary of Birth

Pavel Zhukovsky. On the 175th Anniversary of Birth

17 march—7 june 2021

The artist Pavel Vasilyevich Zhukovsky (1845-1912) was the son of the great Russian poet Vasily Zhukovsky. His work is little known to art lovers today. But in the last third of the 19th century Pavel Zhukovsky was quite well known in social and cultural circles. The works of Pavel Zhukovsky bear the stamp of his passion for Italian Renaissance painting, religious and antique themes. Their execution and figurative interpretation allow us to refer the artist's work to the academic style of late European Romanticism and Symbolism.
