Richmond Museum of Fine Art

Am here at the Richmond Museum for the Faberge Imperial Egg exhibition opening.

Last night, there was a lovely wine reception at a charming bed & breakfast across from the Museum organized by author Christel McCanless.  Faberge experts from all over the world had flown in for the media preview on Thursday.  Russia, Denmark, Sweden, England . . . as well as fans from Canada and the US.

This morning, Geza von Habsburg will be giving us the sneak preview of the exhibit starting at 9am.  The formal opening is tomorrow, Saturday, and the display will run until the beginning of October.  A gorgeous catalog has been printed by Rizzoli, that can be ordered through the Museum.

More to come!

  1. Cityscape seems a good subject for murals. But many themes can of course be painted there, for decoration and as a break and escape from looking at cement. This painting by American painter Charles Sheeler,, would make a good mural as it is as a good painting. The image can be seen as who supplies canvas prints from original art.
