The Crown under the Hammer: Russia, Romanovs, Revolution
October 18, 2017–March 4, 2018
Ruth Levison Halperin Gallery, Lynn Krywick Gibbons Gallery, and Herbert Hoover Memorial Exhibit Pavilion
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 dual-site 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.
