More about the Visits
The Tsar's Cabinet exhibition
Museum of Russian Icons is hosting The Tsars’ Cabinet, which highlights two hundred years of Russian decorative arts under the Romanovs, from the time of Peter the Great in the early 18th century to that of Nicholas II in the early 20th century. Many of the more than 230 objects in the exhibition were designed for public or private use of the tsars or other Romanovs. Others illustrate the styles that were prominent during their reigns. Developed from the Kathleen Durdin Collection and organized by the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William & Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia, in collaboration with International Arts & Artists, Washington, D.C.
