Faberge Eggs

KENSINGTON — Traditional Russian artist and lecturer, Marina Forbes, will offer a unique interactive and beautifully illustrated presentation on Imperial Russian Faberge Eggs on Tues., April 9, 6:30 p.m. at the Kensington Public Library, 126 Amesbury Road in Kensington.

This unique and beautifully illustrated presentation will focus on the life and remarkable work of Russian master jeweler and artist, Peter Carl Fabergé. The program will feature a spectacular photo-tour of the Fabergé collection at the Constantine Palace in St. Petersburg. Emphasis is on the important role of egg painting in Russian culture and on the unique development of this major Russian art form from a traditional craft to the level of exquisite fine art under the patronage of the tsars.

The fascinating history of these eggs and their role in the dramatic events of the last decades of Romanov rule in Russia and in the years following the Revolution will also be discussed by presenter Marina Forbes.

Marina is a lecturer, historian and award-winning artist who has written extensively on Russian traditional arts, history and the rich tapestry of Russian culture.
