SPECIAL EXHIBITION OF THE 43rd RUSSIAN ANTIQUE SALON – “THE RUSSIAN ICON OF THE SILVER AGE”

special project

Russian culture of the beginning of the XX century is usually defined as “the silver age”. The term describes the last culture flowering in the Russian empire which concurs with the short period before its decline. The concept appeared among the Russian emigration forced to leave by the Revolution events. Although little known, Russian national art – the icon painting – had known a considerable rise, as well as literature, philosophy and fine arts.
