Russian monarchs. Pages of history

An unusual exhibition takes place in Pavilion 16 “Hydrometeorology” of VDNH“Russian monarchs. Pages of History.

The exhibition presents a collection of dolls by the artist Olena Wentzel, dedicated to outstanding Russian rulers: from the Rurikovich to Nicholas II. In total, the collection has more than 50 dolls. Each exhibit height from 70 to 100 centimeters was made of porcelain by hand. Special pride - costumes. They were created using the techniques of ancient cut and sewing, antique fabrics and accessories.

The main goal of the project is primarily educational. The central part of the exposition is dedicated to the Romanov dynasty. Among the exhibits, the audience will “meet” the first emperor of Russia Peter I, Empress Catherine II, Emperor Alexander III, as well as contemporaries and associates of the royal family, including the great commanders A.V. Suvorov, M.I. Kutuzov and reformer P.A. Stolypin. Among the characters there are individuals who have influenced Russian history. Therefore, next to Catherine the Great is the French philosopher-educator Voltaire, with whom the Empress corresponded. And next to Emperor Alexander II is a young man in black - this is Ignatius Grinevitsky, a revolutionary who threw a bomb under the feet of the monarch.
