    The Exposition with One Masterpiece. "Saint George" by Andrea Mantegna

    The Moscow Kremlin Museums in collaboration with the Embassy of the Republic of Italy in Moscow introduce to the Russian audience one of the most distinguished painting of the Italian Renaissance artist Andrea Mantegna - "Saint George". Serving as an embodiment of courage, nobleness and selfless service, the image of Saint George was always highly esteemed by the Russian people, therefore the exposition, presenting such a masterpiece, is considered to be of great cultural value. The project gives a unique opportunity to enjoy the artistic merit of the Mantegna's masterpiece, and, taking into consideration the fact that not a single Russian museum hosts paintings by Andrea Mantegna, one of the most outstanding figures in Early Renaissance painting, the exposition in the front hall of the Armoury Chamber is definitely worthy of visiting.

    Byzantine Antiquities

    The project, incorporating masterpieces from the IVth to XVth centuries, was intended to mark the publication of a fundamental scientific catalogue "Byzantine Antiquities in the Moscow Kremlin Museums" - the result of the interdisciplinary research conducted by art historians, linguists, archeologists and restorers. New and more precise attribution, given to the artifacts during the compilation of the catalogue’s materials and investigation of the Kremlin funds, archeological finds, recovered during excavations within the precincts of the Moscow Kremlin, and the museum’s acquisitions of antiquities have enriched the collection of Byzantine art, which gives a fairly full reflection on the peculiarities of Byzantine culture and includes a number of works that are fundamental for its history.
