Curators Roundtable: "Decoding the iconography and symbols of Easter in Russian Art" with Dr. Karen Kettering, Dmitry Gurevich, and Nicholas B.A. Nicholson, Curators of Tradition & Opulence: Easter in Imperial Russia.

Easter is the most important festival in the Orthodox Christian church calendar. Symbols and artwork associated with it live on throughout the year. Join the co-curators of the exhibition Tradition & Opulence for a panel discussion of the ways objects would have functioned throughout the year. The topics include the iconography of the Resurrection, useful egg-form objects such as photograph frames, clocks, and cosmetic cases by Fabergé and his competitors, and how the Romanov family’s support of the Red Cross inspired a wealth of art and material culture, including two of the famous Fabergé Imperial Easter eggs.
