Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution
This sell-out exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, conceived and curated by our own Kieran McCarthy, explored master goldsmith Carl Fabergé – whose internationally recognised firm symbolised Russian craftsmanship, luxury and elegance – and the Anglo-Russian relationship which saw the opening of a London branch in 1903.
November 2021 – May 2022
‘a neatly put-together show that highlights not just Peter Carl Fabergé’s glorious creative vision but also the genuinely stratospheric heights to which his artists and artisans rose in the pursuit of beauty – that actually blows your mind.’
The Evening Standard
‘This show is more than just a parade of eye-wateringly expensive knick-knacks created to tickle the jaded appetites of the super-privileged. Opening up like a Fabergé egg, it has plenty of surprises to reveal.’
‘a beautiful, extravagant show’
