Decorative Arts of Italy, France & England
A look at the decorative works collected in the Hermitage Museum: furnishings, tapestries, pottery, porcelains, and silver. We are shown examples from several periods and areas: the Italian Renaissance, Spanish Majolica, Venetian glassware, Baroque ornamentation, Rococo cabinets and the Neo-Classical style.
Art from Mesopotamia to Ancient China
A look at the Hermitage's collection of art and artefacts from India, China, and Mesopotamia. All these pieces are of great value to scholars who continue to be fascinated by the ideals, dreams, and beliefs of these civilizations.
Russia in the Age of Peter the Great
An examination of how Peter the Great transformed a little-used territory of Swedish swampland into the bustling City of St. Petersburg, home to the Hermitage Museum. The story of Peter's rule and legacy, the awakening of the Russian imagination, is depicted in detail in reliefs by Rastrelli, and etchings by Alexi Zubov.
