90,00 € tax incl.

From 11 August 2018, the State Hermitage will be holding the exhibition “Furniture for a Body’s Every Whim…” The Age of Historicism in Russia devoted to the development of the furniture-maker’s art between the 1820s and 1890s, when in Russia, following Europe’s lead, the single all-embracing style that was Classicism gave way to an enthusiasm for the art of different countries and peoples from the past – the age of Historicism.
There are 300 items in the exhibition, the majority of which are being shown for the first time – drawn designs for furniture; engraved depictions of furniture from the showrooms of St Petersburg shops and workshops; watercolours depicting palace interiors and works of decorative and applied art – reflect the most distinctive phenomena of the time from an artistic point of view and with regard to the patterns of daily life.
