Exhibition of Literary Classics' Interiors Opens in Moscow

The Pushkin State Museum in Moscow is getting ready for opening of the exhibition Behind Screens recreating interiors of the 19th – early 20th centuries described in literary works.

      A screen being a widespread detail of interiors of that epoch has become a token subject of the exposition that is displayed in its name. It carried out both esthetic and functional roles by separating a private space.

      Behind the screens displayed in showrooms, there have been restored corners of bedrooms and drawing rooms, workshops and offices described in Pushkin’s Queen of Spades, Gogol’s Dead Souls, Oblomov’s Goncharov, Turgenev’s Noble Nest and Tolstoy's Childhood have been reproduced. The situation was created according to descriptions in texts.

      The exhibition will be opened from December 19. The museum is located at the address: 12/2, Prechistenka Street.
