Guest-curated by ArtTable member Margaret Kelly Trombly, Fabergé and the Russian Crafts Tradition features 70 objects ranging from 14th Century icons to the Walters’ two Imperial Easter eggs—the Gatchina Palace Egg (presented to the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorvona in1901) and the Rose Trellis Egg (presented to Empress Alexandra in 1907). An array of antique gold and silver vessels, luxurious jewelry, Russian Revival enamels, carved gemstones, and icons illuminates the technical sophistication and artistry of Russian crafts over three-plus centuries. 

After Fabergé, an exhibition of five digital prints by artist Jonathan
Monaghan, runs concurrently. Monaghan’s creations are of surreal versions of the famous Fabergé Imperial Easter eggs. His large-scale prints blend the detail of the original masterworks with modern culture. 

Following, we will have lunch at the Baltimore Museum of Art and a walk-through of their contemporary collection, which features works by Tomás Saraceno, Spencer 
Finchand Senga Nengudi. 

Thank you, Margaret Kelly Trombly and an anonymous donor for making this program possible.
