An exhibition comprising a select 60 works of the museum’s 500-strong collection of iconographic monuments aims to demonstrate the prominent trends in iconography of the 17th to early 20th centuries. These religious works have origins all over Russia, crafted by the masters of Moscow, Mstera, the Russian North and the Urals. The iconostasis of Alexander I, once of the Peter and Paul Fortress, and that of Catherine’s Chapel of the Peter and Paul Cathedral are two must-see monuments of the display.
