Palekh Icons: The Enchantment of Russian Painting
Eighteen works from the private collection of Berlin, Germany art dealer and restorer, Thomas Mönius, augmented with several Palekh icons from the Museum of Russian Icons collection, are showcased in this homage to traditional Palekh-style iconography. Components from the Mönius collection include large and average-sized icons from the 18th and 19th century, some with unusual motifs. Examples of Palekh objets d’art, derivative of Palekh icons, are included in the exhibition.
