BOGORODSKAYA TOY OF THE XIX – XX CENTURIES

13 august 2008—20 october 2008

Circa 200 exhibits from XIX to XXI century from the Russian Museum Collection, Museum of Bogorodskaya factory of art carving, museum of Bogorodskaya artistic and industrial school and private collection are presented on the ‘Bogorodskaya Toy’ exhibition.

From the XIX century the Bogorodskaya toy and sculpture were presented on the exhibitions constantly and from that period of time they became popular. The toy mainly had a secular character. The Bogorodskaya toy was close to aesthetics of cheap popular prints, lithography and folk art theatre. Figures of hard-working men and good-natured bears in fairy tails carved from wood reflect nation’s character and soul. Simple movement mechanisms increase the special liveliness.

The events in social life, replacement of tsar’s persons and wars enlarged the tiny peace of Bogorodskaya toy by various characters for all tastes.

In spite of commercial demand, that doesn’t coincided with the creative criterions of folk art, now the uniqueness of trade of Bogorodskoye are kept mainly in renowned carved traditional toys.

The Leningrad Rock Club in Photographs. Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Its Opening

28 december 2020—10 may 2021

The Leningrad Rock Club was established in early 1981 and has become a true center of attraction for musicians whose art did not fit into the Soviet cultural framework. The Leningrad Rock Club was a sign of the era of upcoming changes in the country and even now, after forty years, it is hardly needed to explain what was its role in the cultural and social life of Leningrad and, more broadly, the country.
