CLINTON — A Curator’s Roundtable Webinar is scheduled for Saturday, May 9, from 1 to 2 p.m., hosted by The Museum of Russian Icons.
“Decoding the iconography and symbols of Easter in Russian Art” will be presented by Karen Kettering, Dmitry Gurevich and Nicholas B.A. Nicholson, curators of “Tradition & Opulence: Easter in Imperial Russia.”
A link to the Zoom webinar will be sent by the host to those interested on the morning of the event.
Easter is the most important festival in the Orthodox Christian church calendar. Symbols and artwork associate with it live on throughout the year.
Join the co-curators of the exhibition “Tradition & Opulence” for a panel discussion of the ways objects would have functioned throughout the year. Topics include the iconography of the Resurrection, useful egg-form objects, such as photograph frames, clocks and cosmetic cases by Faberge and his competitors, and how the Romanov family’s support of the Red Cross inspired a wealth of art and material culture, including two of the famous Faberge Imperial Easter Eggs.
