Russian painters, sculptors, artists

A Majority of One star
What happens when a Russian born middle-aged woman meets a handsome Japanese man while taking a leisurely cruise across the Pacific Ocean? I could not imagine but soon found out when I turned on the television early one morning and came across a classic movie on TMC.

Chess star
Indeed, many – maybe even half -- of the world’s top chess players are Russian. The game was introduced to Russia from India as early as the seventh century via the trade routes. It is a game of skill and not chance.

Crafts Shop star[offsite link]
Browse this site to give yourself a good idea of the range and style of traditional Russian crafts, from nesting dolls to embroidery to lacquer-work.

Russian Ballet star
Ballet originated in Italy in the sixteenth century and was further refined by the French and Russians. Read on about the Russian ballet art form.

Russian Icons star[offsite link]
A collection by the State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg

Russian Icons star
Iconography, in my opinion, is a form of non secular art. It has a long history in Russia where icons are venerated and hold a special place in the church and home.

The Art Garage star
The Garage Museum, a showcase of contemporary art, was opened by a Russian born woman by the name of Dasha Zhukova in Gorky Park, Russia. Dasha appears to be making headlines in the wide world of art.

The Art of Faberge star
The name Faberge evokes images of beautifully crafted items from jewelry to writing sets. It reminds me of days when quality reigned supreme over quantity.

The Hermitage Museum star
If one were to spend a minute viewing each and every one of the Hermitage museum’s pieces, it would take more than a decade to see them all! Read more about one of the finest museums in the world.
