Glass Department

Artistic glasswork is one of the most ancient kinds of decorative and applied art. Valuable physical and chemical properties of glass turned it into a favorite media for artists since the time of its emergence more than 5 thousand years ago.

Our collecting efforts conducted in the course of three decades were aimed to amplify the collection with predominantly Russian artworks. The collection of artistic glasswork in the Museum is extensive and diverse: it ranges from the early products to the best works of the Russian artists of the XX–XXI centuries.

The collection of our museum is one-of-a-kind as it reflects both the history of the Russian artistic glasswork, and diverse trends in the sphere of Russian decorative and applied art.
