Our 23rd Academic Conference, 12.12.2017


The Catherine Palace hosted the 23rd Tsarskoe Selo Academic Conference during November 27 to 29, 2017.

Marking the centenary of the Russian revolution, this year’s theme Art Nouveau in Russia: on the eve of change drew on the art style’s heyday a hundred years ago reflected in architecture, applied arts, painting and literature.

In her greeting address to the attendees, Director Olga V. Taratynova of Tsarskoe Selo (see above left, click to enlarge) emphasized the growing importance of the conference, which had nearly seventy speakers this year, and referred to a self-outgrown Art Nouveau as a lifestyle back then when the Alexander Palace boasted the Maple Drawing Room and the Mauve Study – the two of the most impressive Russian Art Nouveau interiors lost during the Second World War and planned for future restoration.

The conference proceedings (see cover at right, click to enlarge) are expected to become available as a digital download on our website soon.
