Magnificence and surprise: an exploration of Russian Decorative Arts

Join Anne Harbers for a series of lectures focusing on Russian Decorative Arts – extending beyond the wonders of the House of Fabergé (1842 – 1918) to consider porcelain of the Imperial Porcelain Factory (established in 1744) as well as silver, glass, lacquer work, jewellery and hardstone. This story cannot be told without the role played by the Russian Royal family as well as the silversmiths and craftsmen to the Russian architects of the Art Nouveau. We consider how was Russian design influenced by the style-makers of Europe, and what was the role of great monarchs such as Catherine the Great on the arts?
