The All-Russian Museum of Decorative Arts welcomes all to visit an exhibition dedicated to Soviet handicrafts of the 1920s.
With the opening of manufactories and factories, the mainstream of inexpensive products captivated shops and markets. It was a challenging situation for artisans who made chests, cups, bowls, baskets and other household items using traditional Russian crafts.
However, they found an ingenious way out, having combined traditional techniques with new revolutionary plots. At the same time, the principles of Russian popular print painting were preserved, and the traditional techniques of the artists of the Northern Dvina, the Urals and the Volga region, as well as the Mezen decor, were rethought and applied.
So at the exhibition you will see a striking combination of old Russian tradition with heroic revolutionary plots and Soviet slogans.
Where: the All-Russian Museum of Decorative Arts at the address 3, Delegatskaya Street, next to metro stations Novoslobodskaya, Tsvetnoy Boulevard, and Dostoevskaya, Moscow.
