Masterpieces of Russian Lacquered Miniature to be Displayed in Moscow

The All-Russian Museum of Folk Arts and Crafts is opening the exhibition The Russian Lacquered Miniature. Traditions and Modernity on November 13.

      The exposition will present to the public more than 500 best works by both founders of lacquered painting and works by modern masters.

      In the Soviet years the art of lacquered painting was not lost. Lacquered miniature has both preserved traditional scenes and absolutely new themes that were reflecting the colors of the Soviet era and its art esthetics. Russia today has four centers of art of lacquered miniature painting:  Fedoskino, Palekh, Mstera and Kholui.

      The history of Russian lacquered painting totals more than two centuries. Russian masters by creatively developing traditions of the Eastern and West European miniature art, enriched its heritage with unique national experience and expanded the framework of the figurative realm of lacquered miniature painting. Russian miniature did not only incorporate experience and achievements of world lacquered art, but also influenced it and even became a model to emulate.

      The exhibition will run till December 8.
