Exhibition Folk Crafts of Russia in Moscow

The book illustration exhibition tells about the history of origin and development of Russian folk crafts. Visitors will see certain types of Russian folk art such as clay and wooden toys (Dymkovo and Filimonovo toys, etc.), painting utensils and other household items (Gorodetskaya painting, Zhostovo painting, Khokhloma, Palekh, Kholui, etc.), embroidery and sewing (Vologda and Yelets laces, Pavlovsky Posad's shawl and Orenburg downy shawls).

      The exhibition presents a number of publications regarding folk crafts including the famous study " On Russian Arts and Crafts"(1915) by P. S. Sheremetev.
