Join us at The Museum of Russian Art and the St. Paul Jewish Community Center for an evening of delightful stories about food and growing up in the Soviet Union featuring author Anya von Bremzen.
The Museum of Russian Art presents, Unknown Fabergè: New Finds and Re-discoveries, a lecture by art historian, Marilyn Swezey. In the years following the Russian revolution, the art objects produced by the renowned jewelry firm of Fabergè were scattered abroad, sold by the early Soviet state, or hidden away by people to whom they belonged. In addition to the hundreds of jeweled pieces seen in museum collections today, many more just disappeared over the years. With the passage of time, some of these lost objects are re-emerging. Of particular interest is the recent find of an Imperial Easter egg in a rural town in the Midwest. In this illustrated lecture, Marilyn Swezey will explore some of these Faberge objects that have recently come to light. To register, click here!
