Exhibition Dedicated to Sketchbooks to be Opened in Moscow

<i>Sketchbooks Have Become Rare Nowadays…</i> - the exhibition titled by M. Voloshin’s poetic line is dedicated to evolution of the sketchbook genre from the late 18th century till the early 21st century. 

      The tradition of hand-written albums was adopted by Russia from Western Europe. Originally these were mostly noble men engaged in writing and drawing in sketchbooks. From the 1790s a sketchbook became an indispensable accessory of a young lady and an important element of home and family culture. In the early 19th century small intricately decorated gilt-edged sketchbooks in morocco or leather bindings came into fashion.

      The exhibition will be held in the A.S. Pushkin State Museum from August 30 to November 17.
