How Russian were the Russian Tsars?

Professor Alexei Leporc, Curator of Western European Art at the State
Hermitage
Museum, St. Petersburg

Evening Lecture with slides

From the time of Peter the Great, the main ideological aspirations of all
rulers
of this

powerful and uniquely enigmatic empire were to create a highly
Europeanized
state in

every respect. As court life became increasingly European, by the mid
19th-century a

true feeling of being Russian had evolved, manifesting itself in the
architecture, art and

fashions of the age. As part of his select UK lecture programme,
Professor

Alexei Leporc will take Members on a captivating journey through
centuries
revealing

how the Tsars evolved their own style of living, dressing and entertaining
which
was

initially European in veneer but which eventually became
characteristically
Russian

Using illustrations of architecture, paintings, Court dresses and
fashion,
Alexei Leporc

will illuminate the imperial shift of the world’s largest nation.
