Summary: You won’t have to travel overseas to see hidden treasures of Imperial Russia. Discover them in two exhibitions now open at the N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh. The Tsars’ Cabinet: Two Hundred Years of Russian Decorative Arts Under the Romanovs runs concurrently with Windows into Heaven: Russian Icons from the Lilly and Francis Robicsek Collection of Religious Art.
The year 2013 marks the 400th anniversary of the beginning of the Romanov Dynasty, or the House of Romanov — the imperial monarchy that ruled Russia from 1613 until 1917 and included the reigns of Peter the Great, Catherine the Great and Nicholas II, the last tsar.
“To commemorate this anniversary, the Museum of History is presenting these exhibitions that give visitors a rare glimpse into the splendor of Imperial Russia,” said Dr. Jeanne Marie Warzeski, Exhibition Curator.
