Online Exhibition In Search of Paradise. Traditions and Modernity

The Moscow State United Museum-Reserve offers the audience a unique opportunity to see the works of Russian decorative and applied art of the XVII-XX centuries from the museum's collection. Together with them, visitors to the exhibition will see the works of the modern Moscow artistThese are carved sculptures, carvings and ppaintings on wood. The exhibition reflects the image of Paradise in art, created by artists of the past and present.

      The exhibition presents in all its splendor the items that were part of the decoration of the Russian Orthodox church. The Royal or Paradise Gate – the central gate of the iconostasis - opens the sacred space of the altar, the Heavenly Jerusalem, and therefore they are always decorated with the richest floral ornaments.

      One of the most significant monuments in the exhibition, a true masterpiece of Russian wood carving, is a unique canopy (kivoriy) of 1677, which hung on iron chains over the altar of the Transfiguration Cathedral of the Solovetsky Monastery.

      The theme of paradise also inspires contemporary artists: they seek and find in it an inexhaustible source of creativity.
