RUSSIA: ROYALTY & THE ROMANOVSFriday, 9 Nov 2018 - Sunday, 28 Apr 2019
The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace, Buckingham Palace Road, London SW1A 1AA
Through war, alliance and dynastic marriage the relationships between Britain and Russia and their royal families are explored from Peter the Great's visit to London in 1698 through to Nicholas II. Portraits, sculpture, photographs, archival documents and miniature masterpieces by Faberge illustrate historic events and family meetings between the rulers of the two nations.
Many of the rich and varied works of art to be displayed are unique - some commissioned as grand diplomatic gifts, others as intimate personal mementos between the royal family and the Romanovs, and they bring to life the shared patronage of artists and craftsmen from both countries.
