8 October 2020, the ceremonial opening of the exhibition “Carl Fabergé & Feodor Rückert. Masterpieces of Russian Enamel” took place at the Assumption Belfry. The exhibition presents about five hundred masterpieces made by Russian jewellery firms of the 19th – early 20th century of precious metal and covered with enamel, now kept in state and private collections of Russia and the United Kingdom.

Among the first visitors to the exhibition was the Special Presidential Representative for Environmental Protection, Ecology and Transport, Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Moscow Kremlin Museums Sergei Ivanov, who shared with journalists that he knew little about Feodor Rückert: "Everyone knows Fabergé, generally by his delightful works—imperial Easter eggs. But few people know that he has many miniatures, which are also of great historical and artistic value. As for the second author represented here, Rückert, I was almost unfamiliar with this name. He was the greatest contemporary of Faberge as well, they worked together, if I may say so, creating excellent works", – said Sergey Ivanov.

Opening the exhibition, Director General of the Moscow Kremlin Museums Elena Gagarina noted that it is dedicated to the 100th Anniversary of the death of the great Russian jeweller Carl Faberge and the art of Russian enamels. "I would like to thank all those who provided their art pieces to this exhibition. Thanks to you it turned out what we wanted to do - to present our audience with luxurious precious Russian enamels. It was very difficult for us to collect the works, more than 20 state museums and private collections are involved in this project. I understand how difficult it was for collectors to part with their belongings, how difficult it was to bring exhibits from abroad, so I want to express my special gratitude to the Victoria and Albert Museum from London, whose employees, despite all the difficulties, were able to organize the transfer of their exhibits to the Kremlin", – noted Elena Gagarina.

The event was also attended by Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of PJSC Sberbank Olga Golodets and CEO of the LUKOIL Charity Fund Igor Beketov. Welcoming the guests, Olga Golodets said: "What a pleasure it is to get in touch with living art today. This is a very interesting display, which refers to the time when the attitude to applied art was quite special, and when the finest lines were drawn and the smallest details were given special attention. Today we are in touch with masterpieces of Russian applied art, which are our pride. I am eternally grateful to the Moscow Kremlin Museums and Elena Yurievna, to all the curators and associates who were able to make this show and bring it to the public in such a difficult time".

Igor Beketov, General Director of the LUKOIL Charity Fund, which supports the exhibition, remarked: "It is a great honour for us to become the partner of one of the largest events in the life of our city. Knowing how long this exhibition has been going to the spectator and how much effort and energy the employees of the Moscow Kremlin Museums have invested in its preparation and organization, I would like to thank everyone. The enormous work done allows visitors to enjoy masterpieces of Russian jewellery makers. I wish lively impressions and discoveries to all who will come to the exhibition and I am sure that, despite all the circumstances of our life, the display will be a huge spectator success and a great event in the cultural life of Moscow".
