Exhibition of Russian Glazed Tiles to be Held in Moscow

April 19 will see the opening of the exhibition of Russian izrazets (glazed tiles) of the 17th – early 20th centuries in Shchusev State Museum of Architecture, Moscow.

      The museum’s fund construction materials, well-known to experts, are for the first time exhibited as a self-sufficient value.

      Traditions of use of irrigation glazed tiles (izrazets) in the Russian architecture are rooted in the 17th century, when narrative and ornamental tiles were elements of church decor. The tiles were decorated with images of battle scenes, fantastic animals, birds, floral and flower motives, as well as plots illustrating popular literary works of the time.

      From the early 18th century glazed tiles were used mostly for decoration of interiors, including Russian stoves.

      The exhibition will take place till May 19.
