The Ekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts will host an exhibition showcasing unique pieces of porcelain from the Romanovs. The collection is on loan from the State Museum of Ceramics at the Koskovo Museum near Moscow, and is dedicated to the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty.
The exhibition will feature more than a dozen services, which before the Revolution were housed in the store rooms of the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg. They showcase the works of both Russian and European masters, reflecting the evolution of artistic styles and variations of Court etiquette over the last 200 years of the Romanov dynasty.
Visitors will see examples of Russian rococo, neo-classical examples by Sevres and the Imperial Porcelain Factory. Also on display are copies of the Coronation albums of Emperor Alexander II (1856) and Emperor Nicholas II (1896).
The exhibition runs from May 31st to August 4th, 2013 at the Ekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts at Ulitsa Voevodina, 5.
