Exhibition from Cycle Christmas Offering in Hermitage Museum

The State Hermitage Museum presents the exhibition «Decorative Minimalism. «Thaw» in Soviet Porcelain» from the cycle Christmas Offering.

      The exposition includes more than 160 works by artists of the mid-twentieth century and contemporary artists. Among the exhibits, there are table sets, vases and miniature sculptures. Most of them were created by sculptors and artists of the Lomonosov Leningrad Porcelain Factory.

      Works of the Thaw Era are characterized by simple forms and functionality.

      Ida Schick, the curator of the exhibition, said: "In general, the period of the Khrushchev Thaw is one of the brightest periods of art, in particular the development of porcelain. As part of this exhibition, we would like to tell you exactly how the Thaw appeared in porcelain with its characteristic aesthetic trends, a modern style that taught us to see the beautiful in the simple. And if we try to generalize what the Thaw brought into porcelain, it is the active development of new forms, updating the theme of painting, the development of a diverse artistic language, which can defined as decorative minimalism».

      Where: Main Museum Complex at the Eastern Gallery of the Winter Palace, Hermitage Museum at the 
address 34, Dvortsovaya Embankment, Saint Petersburg.

      When: December 26, 2020 – March 4, 2021
