CATHERINE THE GREAT

Art for Empire

Edited by Nathalie Bondil


Thanks to an agreement with the Hermitage Museum in Saint-Petersburg – one of the world’s most celebrated art institutions – the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Art Gallery of Toronto mount an exhibition highlighting the extraordinary treasures collected y Catherine the Great (1729-1796). These include paintings (by Chardin, Bourdon, Le Lorrain, Tiepolo, Vien and Boucher among others), jewellery, precious stones, furniture, architectural models and many other priceless objects. Catherine II, Empress of Russia, was the greatest art collector and patron of the 18th century. She believed in the political dimension of art, and was convinced of its fundamental role in changing Russia, both socially and culturally. The 220 works and objects in this catalogue, most of which have never been shown in North America, reveal the grandeur of her ambitions.
