The Enchanted Art: A Legacy in Russian Lacquer

Fireside Gallery

Richly detailed, carefully crafted and colorful, the 65 lacquer miniatures on display reveal the distinct styles and unique artistry that developed in four Russian villages: Fedoskino, Kholui, Mstera and Palekh. Fairytales, literary works, historical events, and episodes from everyday life are a few of the wide-ranging themes depicted on these exquisite objects. On view for the first time, the exhibition features lacquer miniatures from TMORA’s permanent collection, and works on loan from private lenders. A must see!
