Christmas Exhibition of Porcelain Opened in the Hermitage Museum

The Christmas Picture exhibition with over 250 works of author’s porcelain of the late 20th - early 21st runs in the Winter Palace of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.

      The exhibition is taking place within the traditional cycle Present for Christmas and mostly consists of the collection of the Hermitage and the Imperial Porcelain Plant. It is interesting that during the Soviet era the Christmas theme did not stand high in esteem for obvious reasons.

      The exhibited works are created in various styles and forms, and some of them just slightly remind of the exposition subject. Besides modern works there are also historical items. For example, the porcelain figures presenting characters of the Nutcracker fairy tale or motley painted plates with Christmas scenes of children coasting and playing at snowballs.

      The exhibition will run till March 23.
