Merchant Portrait of 18th - 20th Centuries Displayed in Moscow

An exhibition of merchant portraits of the 18th-early 20th centuries has been opened in the State History Museum in Moscow.

      The exhibition presents portraits of merchants of the 18th - early 20th centuries. Most of these portraits were ordered and made for patrimonial portrait galleries. The exposition also includes merchants’ daguerreotypes, photos and collection items. The visitors will have a chance not only to track the evolution of the genre from “merchant” portrait to the portrait of a merchant, from the costume and object depiction to a psychological portrait, but also to plunge into the atmosphere of merchant life. Russian costumes of that time, books, manuscripts, ornaments, and engravings will be demonstrated to public. Altogether more than a hundred portraits and about a hundred collection objects are exhibited.

      The exhibition will run till March 31, 2014.
