Back to Empire Style Epoch in Kolomenskoe Estate

Exhibition Time of Empire Style opens in the Palace Pavilion of 1825 in the Kolomenskoe Memorial Estate in Moscow.
      It will represent over 100 rare exhibits dating back to the luxurious epoch of the 19th century.
      Some items will be displayed for general public for the first time, such us, for example, a rare collection of bronze clocks of that period. All these period pieces, among them furniture, palace interior furnishings, sculptural compositions, portraits and graphic works are united by the Empire style, which was especially popular in France under Napoleon and in Russia during the reign of Alexander I.
      The exhibition is dedicated to the 200th anniversary since the Patriotic War of 1812, which put an end to Napoleon's policy of grab. The choice of the exhibition venue is not accidental: the Palace Pavilion of 1825 is the only remaining construction of the Palace of Alexander I. In childhood the future emperor often visited Kolomenskoe with his grandmother Catherine II.
      The exhibition is open for public from June 29 to September 29.
