Old Russian Metal Etching to be Displayed in St. Petersburg

July 11 will see the opening of the exhibition Metal Etching in Russia. The 17th-19th centuries in the Mikhailovsky Palace.

      Etching played an important role in the Russian art up to the early 20th century, while the Russian society had a need for mass-market replications of various graphic originals.

      However, the history of development and peculiarities of metal etching art are still little known to general public. The exhibition will for the first time present this art form and variety of its techniques so fully and multilaterally on the example of works of the 17th-19th centuries from the Russian Museum collection. It will also display boards and tools, which were used by artists in the course of etching process.

      The exhibition will run till September 23, 2013.
