MOSCOW, January 07, 7:33 /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow’s State Historical Museum on Red Square will show an exhibition devoted to WWI and will tell its visitors about the English breakfast in 2014, according to the museum’s director, Alexei Levykin.
The exposition devoted to the centenary anniversary of the start of WWI will open at the museum’s left wing in August. It will feature exhibits taken from collections in Russia, Germany, Britain and other countries. The English breakfast exposition will be put on view at the museum’s main building as part of the Russian-British reciprocal year of culture. An exhibition devoted to party leaders will open in March. The visitors will have a chance to see a unique collection of the Lenin museum.
The Moscow State Historical Museum will continue cooperation with museums in Bulgaria.
An exhibition of the 18th-early 20th century portraits of merchants as well as painting and photography is currently under way at the museum.
“The exposition features the portraits of representatives of merchant families of the 18th- early 20th-centuries which were ordered and made for family portrait galleries,” Natalya Perevezentseva, the exhibition’s curator, says.
“One of the ideas behind the exhibition was to trace the evolution of official gala portraits to chamber photographic imprints on silver bars. The exhibits show the illusiveness and magic realism of the portrait genre,” the curator went on to say.
The exhibition will be open until March 31, 2014.
