FORES Supports Exhibition at Ekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, November 27, 2019. A permanent exhibition on the Russian art in the 17th to the early 20th centuries reopened in Yekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts after a recent reconstruction. OOO FORES and the newly established non-profit The Shmotyev Family Foundation were among the benefactors behind the project.

20 out of 154 works that are now featured within the Russian Art Collection used to be part of the museum’s reserve stock. These are mostly canvases created at the turn of the 20th century, FORES’s press service reports.

Special-purpose exhibition equipment was purchased for the reopening, which meant the museum was able to house considerably more works of art in its five renovated halls than before. Thanks to this equipment, the canvases have much better protection against potential acts of vandalism or attempts at stealing. The new equipment is only used for this permanent exhibition for the time being, but the museum’s other spaces will soon get fitted with similar appliances as well.

The reconstruction process involved certain exhibits as well, including, for example, the large-size molded frame for Karl Bryullov’s Portrait of A Lady-in-Waiting.
