The exhibition contains twenty pieces that represent European tapestry weaving belonging to such artistic tendencies as Historicism, the Art Nouveau and Modernism. Visitors will be seeing many of them for the first time or else after a long interval. Some came into the museum from the collection of the imperial family and once adorned the Winter Palace, others came from private collections in Russia. In recent decades, some tapestries of interest to the museum have also been acquired, including the first tapestry by Jean Lurçat in the Hermitage’s stocks – Blaze of Fire.
The exhibition of 19th- and 20th-century tapestries will acquaint visitors with an important branch of the textile crafts and expand the picture of fine art during that period.
