18th-19th centuries paintings, accessories and dresses are also on the display.
An exhibition from St. Petersburg’s Hermitage museum displaying jewelry of the Russian empresses has opened in Amsterdam in the Hermitage on the Amstel, a branch of the Russian museum in the Netherlands.
There are also paintings, accessories and dresses on the display, allowing to feel the extravagant atmosphere of the St. Petersburg aristocracy in the 18th and 19th centuries.
According to Georgy Vilinbakhov, Deputy Director of the Hermitage, the Hermitage is the first museum to have established a foreign branch. Now such museum centers are not so uncommon, for example, the Louvre opened a branch in Abu-Dhabi two years ago.
The Hermitage jewelry exhibition will be open in Amsterdam until March 15, 2020. After that, it will be the turn of St. Petersburg to receive an exhibition from Amsterdam. A collection of medieval art will be displayed.
