This exhibition explores the Russian crafts tradition that culminated with the world-renowned House of Fabergé. Between 1885 and the revolution of 1917, Peter Carl Fabergé’s workshop created exquisite jeweled and enameled Easter eggs for the Russian tsars. The exhibition includes over 70 stunning objects that highlight the extraordinary artistry of Russian jewelers and enamel-workers, including the Walters’ two Fabergé Easter eggs. A concurrent exhibition, After Fabergé, by contemporary artist Jonathan Monaghan, reinvents the famous Easter eggs for the 21st century in a series of five prints that comment on consumer culture and changing definitions of luxury.
