Moscow in Photographs of the 1860s — early 1900s. From the cycle “Traveling around Russian Empire”
4 july 2018—13 august 2018
The Russian Museum holds a unique collection representing the photographic image of Moscow in the 1860s — early 1900s. It includes photographs by prominent masters and well-known studios, such as Scherer, Nabholz & Co., Russian Photography in Moscow, A. P. Reinbot, I. F. Barschevsky, I. N. Aleksandrov, M. P. Nastyukov, M. M. Panov, E. M. Simonov, K. A. Fischer, S. A. Baranov, W. Cecatto, T. Mitreiter, and others. 

Moscow-based photographers worked in a great variety of genres and techniques. They created views and panoramas, interior and architectural photographs, scenes of everyday life in the city, gift albums fit for the tsar, and even postcards. They captured landmarks of Moscow architecture that have been long gone and that are still in place today. Taken from different viewpoints, these photographs allow for a thorough study of those buildings, providing us with information on their location, décor, and function. 

Two hundred historical views of Moscow, presented to the broad public for the first time ever, continue the photographic retrospective series “Traveling around Russian Empire” and are dedicated to the 870th anniversary of Moscow.

The main goal of the exhibition is to present the local features of patchwork in numerous centers of folk art in Russia and to show the original creative style of individual masters of the 20th century. The exhibition introduces the viewer to the truly folk patchwork, which was developed not in creative units and clubs, but in the villages and small towns of Russia.
