Persia : thirty centuries of art & culture by A. T Adamova( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was the last Shah of Persia who in 1935 requested the international community to henceforth call his country by its own name, Iran, 'Land of the Aryans'. The history of this country is a long and rich one." "The Iranian culture is individual and unique. Its characteristic designs and iconography have survived down the centuries despite the many political and religious changes and developments to affect the country." "From ancient times until the nineteenth century Persian artists depicted the world around them in reliefs and ceramics, on paper, parchment and canvas. The figurative element was never banished from Persian art, although the Koran discouraged bringing man and beast to life in artistic representations. Yet artists aspired to heavenly perfection in their art as a way of honouring Allah and working in His spirit." "This book presents the splendid collection of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. The collection includes many interesting pieces covering the whole history of Iran from antiquity to the end of the Qajar dynasty (1785-1925)."--Jacket
Greek gold : from the treasure rooms of the Hermitage by Yuri Kalashnik( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and Dutch and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first half of the 19th century remarkable finds were made in burial mounds on the north coast of the Black Sea: Greek vases, wooden sarcophagi and a great deal of gold. The jewellery was associated with the elaborate funerary rites in the local settlements. At first the excavations were carried out by inexperienced archaeologists, but later on the Imperial Archaeological Commission headed by Sergei Grigorievich Stroganov was put in charge." "The gold jewellery placed on or near the deceased proved to have been exceptionally well preserved - from fragile olive wreaths to beautiful ear pendants, necklaces and ornaments to be worn on the head. These pieces were given a place in the treasure rooms of the Winter Palace, now the State Hermitage Museum, in St. Petersburg." "Greek Gold is the first exhibition to be held in the Hermitage Amsterdam."--Jacket

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pilgrim Treasures from the Hermitage: Byzantium-Jerusalem presents the highlights from the splendid collection of pilgrims' souvenirs in the State Hermitage Museum St. Petersburg: oil lamps and bronze crosses from the Early Byzantine period (4th to 7th centuries), icons and reliquaries from the 10th to the 13th centuries, and pilgrims' souvenirs in mother-of-pearl and fish-bone icons from the 18th and 19th centuries." "This book showcases the physical forms of spiritual quests, showing how different cultures interacted to create the masterpieces of East Christian art."--BOOK JACKET
Art nouveau during the reign of the last tsars : [catalogue for the exhibition Art Nouveau under the last Tsars( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Art Nouveau during the Reign of the Last Tsars accompanies the Hermitage Museum's eighth exhibition in Amsterdam of the vast collection of Art Nouveau objects bestowed on the Russian court as diplomatic gifts. France was particularly generous as part of its strategy to enlist the support of Russia in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870 Galle, the Daum brothers; Carl Faberge and Rene Lalique are just a few of the artists acquired by the tsars and by wealthy private citizens. Buyers included Tsar Alexander III, Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra whose bedroom was decorated with vases by Galle." "Charting the birth and peak of the movement, this book provides examples of objects acquired by collectors of the decorative arts in St. Petersburg. Art Nouveau had a major impact on Russian artists who drew on elements of the practice yet rejected others to create the Russian Stil Modern. This looked towards both Art Nouveau styles and more traditional and local art. Whilst celebrating the royal patronage of Western artists, the aim of this publication is also to reveal how medieval Russian architecture, fine art and folk art were all harnessed to create this unique Russian style." "Art Nouveau during the Reign of the Last Tsars is a unique opportunity to discover examples of Art Nouveau objects that were previously unseen. This collection of works represent the highlights of the Hermitage collection of Western decorative arts."--Jacket
Matisse to Malevich : pioneers of modern art from the Hermitage by Gosudarstvennyĭ Ėrmitazh (Russia)( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and Dutch and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the exhibition "Matisse to Malevich. Pioneers of modern art" from the Hermitage some 75 paintings have been selected from one of the world's finest collections of French painting from the early twentieth century: that of the Hermitage in St Petersburg. Matisse, Picasso and Derain receive special attention, as do Fauvists like Van Dongen and De Vlaminck and their outstanding works in this collection. Its origins go back to the Moscow collectors Ivan Morozov and above all Sergei Shchukin. Their collecting policy is the subject of an article in the catalogue. Another article focuses on the well-known Russian artists of that period, Kandinsky and Malevich. This is the first time that all these avant-garde masterpieces will be shown in the Netherlands. The exhibition and the catalogue chart the origins of Modernism as an art-historical movement, and the artists' inspiration when they initiated a revolution in art at the beginning of the last century. Exhibition: Hermitage Museum, Amsterdam, 6 March - 17 September 2010
Venezia! by Hermitage Amsterdam( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and Dutch and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Both St Petersburg and Amsterdam have often been called the Venice of the North. The expression is a good starting point for presenting the finest works of the St Petersburg Hermitage's collection of eighteen-century Venetian art in the Hermitage Amsterdam and in this volume. In the eighteen century famous painters such as Canaletto, Guardi, Longhi and Tiepolo provided a suitable grande finale to Venice's magnificent artistic tradition. These artists are generously represented in the collections of the Hermitage in St Petersburg and for this overview a selection has been made of paintings, drawings and prints by these and other famous artists. The works are supplemented by exquisite examples of the famous Venetian glass, a long-standing tradition in the city."--BOOK JACKET

The filigree collection of the tsars is the only royal filigree collection to have been preserved in its entirety, yet has received little scholarly attention to date. This publication will contribute to the further study of this unique collection and the issues surrounding it, and will introduce a new audience to the wonders of this Eastern silver."--BOOK JACKET

Rubens, Van Dyck & Jordaens : Flemish painters from the Hermitage by Van Dyck & Jordaens (Exhibition : Rubens( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gives an excellent overview of Flemish art from the Hermitage in St Petersburg. A large proportion was acquired in the eighteenth century by Catherine the Great, from superb collections such as those of Crozat and Brühl, which she bought up in their entirety. Many of these paintings originally hung in churches and monasteries in Antwerp and other European cities. Most attention focuses on the 'big three': Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck and Jacob Jordaens. Rubens was the most important, the most talented, and the most influential seventeenth-century Flemish painter. He was also a phenomenon in his day, a true homo universalis. The portraits produced by Van Dyck for the court of King Charles I of England also share the limelight, along with impressive history paintings by Jordaens, exuding the vibrant atmosphere in which he excelled. Exhibition: De Nieuwe Kerk - Hermitage, Amsterdam, 17.9.2011 to 16.3.2012
Nicholas + Alexandra : the last tsar and tsarina( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nicholas II and Alexandra have gone down in history as the last royal couple of Russia. With them the Romanov dynasty, that had ruled the country for three hundred years, came to an end. Rarely has a personal narrative been so interwoven with the destiny of a nation." "The love of Nicholas (1868-1918) for his wife Alexandra (1872-1918) and their five children Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia and the Tsarevich Alexei, distracted his attention from his tasks as ruler. After a turbulent reign he was finally forced to abdicate and was transported with his family to Ekaterinenburg. Half a year later, in 1918, the Bolsheviks murdered him and his family. The Romanovs had become the symbol of the old regime in Russia."

This book presents thes three historical figures, whose lives were closely intertwined, from the peace treaties signed on a raft in Tilsit in 1807 to themeeting between the Tsar and Josephine in Paris in 1814. Napoleon's Russian campaign of 1812 plays a central role. The war was the beginning of the end. One essay is devoted to the Dutch soldiers who fought with the French. The book portrays Josephine as a muse and companion, but also as an art collector, who left her heirs a fantastic array of works by masters such as Potter, van der Werff, Luini, and Canova. Special attention is devoted to the astonishing story of how her splendid dinner services and furniture found their way to St Petersburg. The book accompanies the exhibition of the same name in the Hermitage Amsterdam, with historical, personal, and exceptional art objects. It includes more than 150 illustrations."--
Expedition Silk Road : journey to the West : treasures from the Hermitage by Gosudarstvennyĭ Ėrmitazh (Russia)( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The legendary Silk Road existed long before the birth of Christ. It was not a single highway but a great web of trade routes. Until the 15th century the Silk Road was the largest trading network in the world, extending from China to the Mediterranean. Travellers had to cross dangerous mountain passes and inhospitable deserts, although they could break their journeys in fertile oases and prosperous small kingdoms. It was here that trade was conducted. And art flourished. In connecting major civilisations, such as India, Persia, China and the Roman Empire, the Silk Road engendered unprecedented cultural exchange. This book presents the rare beauty of finds from vanished cities: wall paintings, Buddhas and precious artefacts of silk, silver, glass, gold and terracotta. All recovered during Russian archaeological expeditions in the 19th and 20th centuries. By explorers who trod in the footsteps of kings, merchants and Buddhist monks. Now readers can tread in the footsteps of these archaeological pioneers and follow the same trade routes to the West. On a journey through a world of unexpected and unbelievably splendid treasures"--Page 4 of cover
