Drawn from the collection of the Russia’s State Hermitage Museum, one of the world’s greatest museums, this exhibition focuses on paintings by “Old Masters,” dating from the 16th century Renaissance to Baroque and Rococo works from the 17th and 18th centuries. The museum, located in St. Petersburg, the imperial capital of Russia, began with 317 paintings that Catherine the Great had acquired in 1764. Successive reigns continued amassing works until eventually the museum came to possess one of the largest collections in the world. The term “Old Master” refers to classical artists who are firmly established in the canon of Western art history. With a total of 85 works by legendary figures such as Titian, Rembrandt, and Rubens, this exhibition will provide visitors will an invaluable opportunity to relish the unbroken line of European painting.
