Jeweller to the Czars

from June 14 to October 5, 2014
Museum of Fine Arts for the Montreal, Canada

We are in charge of the french press relations for the Museum of Fine Arts for the Montreal.

The most important Fabergé collection outside Russia is coming to Montreal – the exclusive Canadian venue. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the Russian jeweller Carl Fabergé (1846-1920) created precious objects for the Czars Alexander III and Nicholas II. The name of this firm became synonymous with elegant craftsmanship in luxury jewellery, and is also associated with the final days of the Russian imperial family, a tragic story that marked the start of the twentieth century.
The exhibition features some 240 objects, including four of the most famous Easter eggs commissioned by the Romanovs.
Enamelled picture frames, clocks, gold cigarette cases and knobs for walking canes, rock-crystal flowers, caskets and brooches encrusted with rubies continue to fascinate us as they did when they first appeared in the windows of the Fabergé stores in Saint Petersburg, Moscow and London.
An exhibition organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, in collaboration with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts for the Montreal presentation.
