In memory of Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich. Items from the collection presented to the Hermitage
The State Hermitage Museum presents an exhibition“In memory of Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich. Items from the collection presented to the Hermitage ».

The exhibition will present objects of decorative art transferred to the Hermitage in 1910 by Grand Duchess Elizabeth Fedorovna, widow of Sergei Alexandrovich.

The patronage and collecting traditional for the Romanovs did not pass Sergey Aleksandrovich. In the early 1880s, the Grand Duke often visited Italy and spent a particularly long time in Florence, where he acquired significant works of art. A special section of the personal collection of Sergei Alexandrovich was represented by art miniatures and objects of decorative and applied art. Some of them were related to his family, historical figures or events that interested the prince. Others attracted his attention with their rarity or high level of performance. This part of the grand collection will be shown as a single complex at the exhibition for the first time.
