Moscow, All-Russian Museum of Decorative, Applied and Folk Art
11.2013 – 02.2014
A large-scale exhibition of works by the legendary English company Wedgwood took up 600 square metres of chambers of the Museum of Decorative and Applied Arts. It presented works from the collection of the Lady Lever Museum (Liverpool), which had not previously left the country, as well as unique and rare exhibits from the collections of the State Hermitage, the State Tretyakov Gallery, the State Museum of Fine Arts named after A.Pushkin, from the palace-museums of Moscow and the suburbs of St. Petersburg (Tsarskoye Selo, Pavlovsk, Peterhof, the estates of Ostankino, Kuskovo, Kolomenskoye).
The idea of the exhibition was to demonstrate the importance of innovative thinking in the field of art, science and entrepreneurship through the impressive experience of Josiah Wedgwood. For the first time in Moscow, visitors were presented with original samples of impeccable taste, high quality, elegance and style of Wedgwood products.
