Fabulous Fabergé, Jeweller to the Czars

Fabulous Fabergé, Jeweller to the Czars
MONTREAL  •  Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal  •  Ongoing
The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts presents the largest Fabergé collection outside of Russia from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) in Richmond.

The name of Carl Fabergé (1846-1920), the Russian jeweller who created valuable objects for the Czars Alexander III and Nicholas II, became synonymous with elegant craftsmanship in luxurious jewellery. The House of Fabergé was also associated with the last days of the Russian imperial family and a tragic chapter of history at the start of the twentieth century. The exhibition comprises 240 objects from this exceptional collection, including four of the forty-three remaining famous Easter eggs commissioned by the Romanovs.
