About this event

Lauren's talk explores three objects in the Russian collection. She will discuss the art of woodworking by focusing on a mid-19th century oak armchair carved with trompe l'oeil themes and the Russian adage: 'The more calmly you drive, the quicker you'll arrive' [Tishe edesh', dal'she budesh'] and a painted shaft bow, part of a horse harness placed over a single horse or the middle one in a set of three known as a 'troika'. Lauren will also examine an early 19th century lubok depicting the bird of paradise Alkonost. A type of street literature consisting of a single sheet of paper with text and images, the lubok first appeared in the 17th century. Nearly three hundred years later, the lubok served as a significant source of inspiration for the Russian avant-garde.
