The Stroganovs. The era in icon images

Perm State Art Gallery opens an exhibition“The Stroganovs. The era in icon images ".

The exposition presents works of decorative and applied art and icons of the 16th-17th centuries, marked with inset inscriptions by the Stroganovs. For the first time, the gallery exhibits a number of works - this became possible thanks to a complex restoration.

The family of the Stroganovs, merchants and salt producers, collected the richest libraries; icons painted by the best icon painters, and cult objects made by first-class craftsmen. "Stroganov" icons - as a rule, of small size, virtuoso, almost gem-quality in the subtlety of their writing - belong to the end of the 16th-first third of the 17th centuries. The Church of the Praise of the Virgin, founded in 1564, became the focus of the masterpieces of art - it was from here that the best works of Old Russian art of the 16th-17th centuries came to the collection of the Perm Art Gallery.
