By Dr. Mikhail Borisovich Piotrovsky and Georgy Vilinbak
This stunning volume showcases the magnificent court dress of the Russian Empire, culled from the authoritative collection at the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and photographed against the backdrop of the Winter Palace. Celebrated for luxurious materials and impeccable craftsmanship, the dress of the Russian nobility was haute couture at its finest. This lavish book reveals their incredible clothing, from everyday dress and ceremonial attire to dress for special occasions, including elaborate evening wear for theater and musical events and fancy masquerade balls. With beautiful photography and details highlighting the hand-spun silks, lace, and jeweled embroideries, Russian Splendor highlights the glamour of this gilded age and offers a fascinating window into a vanished world. Essays by Hermitage Museum curators, alongside historic Russian paintings and photographs, place the clothing in a historical context, revealing the rich cultural layers and artistic influences of czarist Russia.
