The Kremlin Workshops and the Flowering of Ottoman Art in Russia

In the 16th, 17th, and early 18th centuries, the Kremlin workshops operated within the walls of the tsar’s Moscow citadel as a supply source for virtually everything needed for the tsar’s private and public life. Among the output of the workshops were many objects that incorporated Ottoman Empire and Safavid Dynasty design in their creation, or reused imported objects, including weaponry, helmets, horse saddles, and swords. Explore the history of the connections between the tsar’s and the sultan’s workshops with Scott Ruby, associate curator of Russian and Eastern European art, Hillwood Estate, Museum, and Gardens. 6 PM. $35/members; $45/non-members. Advance registration required; space is limited.
