The Crown under the Hammer: Russia, Romanovs, Revolution
The exhibition at the Herbert Hoover Memorial Exhibit Pavilion has been extended to April 27, 2018. The exhibition at the Cantor Arts Center closed March 4.
Marking the centenary of the Russian Revolution of 1917 this exhibition examines the political, social, and cultural upheavals that transformed Russia in the final decades of the Romanov dynasty and the first years of Soviet Communism. Jointly organized by the Hoover Institution Library & Archives and the Cantor Arts Center, this exhibition features a wide variety of art objects and documentary material. Paintings and posters, photographs and films, rare books and decorative art objects alternately evoke the lost world of Russia’s old regime and hint at the utopian future imagined by the nation’s revolutionaries.
