Third international symposium devoted to Fabergé took place in St. Petersburg
The third international symposium devoted to Fabergé — "The World of Fabergé in St. Petersburg: a glance across the century" — took place in St. Petersburg on 2-3 October, 2014. For two days, museum professionals, curators, and art historians from around the world discussed topical issues related to the preservation of the creative legacy of Carl Gustav Fabergé. The venue for the event was the Fabergé Museum, the opening of which took place on November 19, 2013.
This is the first time in the history of the symposium that it was held in Russia: the two previous events took place in the U.S. in 2011 and 2013, at the Art Museum (Richmond, Virginia) and the Museum of Natural Sciences (Houston, Texas) respectively. Researchers of the famous St. Petersburg jeweler's work, representatives of auction houses from different countries, and prominent collectors attended these events. The proposal by Russian participants for the conference to be held in St. Petersburg in 2013 was met positively, especially since its theme is closely connected with the history and art of Russia.
