MOSCOW, December 24, 22:08 /ITAR-TASS/. An exhibition of the 18th-early 20th century portraits of merchants as well as painting and photography opened at the State Historical Museum in Moscow on Tuesday.
“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, said in an interview with Itar-Tass.
“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.
