Study Day: Russian Silver in America: Surviving the Melting Pot
Saturday, February 26, 10am-4pm
Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens
Hillwood’s curator emeritus Anne Odom’s new volume, Russian Silver in America: Surviving the Melting Pot, surveys Russian silver production, its changing forms, styles, imagery and techniques over more than 250 years and its impact on American collectors. This study day draws on research into the collections at Hillwood, The Walters Art Museum, The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Explore this topic with Odom, Scott Ruby, curator of Russian and Eastern European art at Hillwood, Bill Johnston, senior curator of 18th- and 19th-century art at The Walters Art Museum, Wolfram Koppe curator of European decorative arts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Géza Von Habsburg, curator of Fabergé at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art and investigate the special display of Russian silver in the Mansion.
