HISTORY OF MAGNIFICENCE – A SERIES OF LECTURES AND SEMINARS
IN COLLABORATION WITH THE INSTITUTE OF ART BUSINESS AND ANTIQUES AND TURANDOT ANTIQUE GALLERY
Delivered by the most renowned lecturers of the Institute of art and antiques – fine art historians, experts and collectors, Turandot Academy lectures and workshops will be focused on the history of art styles and decorative arts, collecting, attribution and expertise of antique and modern works of art. The syllabus combines both theoretical and practical aspects of attribution and evaluation of antiques. Our students will be introduced to the history of mirrors, tapestries, furniture, jewelry, interior styles and landscape design. As classes will be held in the theme halls of Turandot Restaurant and Turandot Antique Gallery, their palatial interiors and valuable antiques will cease to be mere background objects and become powerful study tools.
Turandot Academy students are also offered to take part in education tours around the best European museums, attend international festivals and fairs of antique and modern arts together with the leading art historians and experts in art-investment.
It is the first time in Moscow when the course content has incorporated lectures on the history of luxury and great eccentrics of the Modern and Contemporary times, from Rudolf the Second and August the Strong to Marchesa Casati and Nicolas Ryabushinski. Our retrospective review includes images of great visionaries, patrons of art and art enthusiasts, decadents and dandies – a whole stellar cast of figures that the European civilization owes to its beautiful architectural buildings, treasures of decorative arts , important collections and influential cultural trends that had largely shaped its image.
Advance registration for all Academy events is COMPULSORY.
