Old Lacquer
The Museum has a rare collection of Old Russian and foreign lacquer works. Many years of research and collection efforts helped create an interesting fund. The creative study of the global experience of lacquer painting from the East and from the West, diversity of methods and motifs used, involvement in everything that goes on around them, inspired interpretation of traditional themes and methods helped Old Russian masters create their own image of the world.
Soviet and Contemporary Lacquer Crafts
Lacquer miniature painting that emerged in the former lacquer painting centers of Palekh, Kholuy and Mstera after the revolution brought world fame to the Russian lacquer painting. Exhibitions and permanent contacts help our museum identify and present interesting artworks of the current period, follow the prospects of lacquer painting and the success of revived icon-painting in the new historical situation.
