Lecture: Edward Kasinec – Romanov’s Art & Armand’s Hammer

Edward Kasinec takes a closer look at the early career of the single most important figure in 20th century Russian-American cultural and economic contacts, Armand Hammer, M.D. This richly illustrated talk focuses on Hammer’s collecting of paintings, decorative arts, books and manuscripts during his stay in Soviet Russia in the 1920s, and his “creative” marketing and sale of these objects in post-depression America.
