Directions to Art Deco Museum
In December, 2014, the first private Art Deco Museum in Russia opened in the former mansion of Imperial Mint on the Luzhnetskaya Embankment. The founder of the museum, Mkrtich Okroyan, is widely known in the world of art thanks to his participation in the Sotheby's exhibition in Paris for the 100th anniversary of Diaghilev's seasons and the exhibition at the Museum of Art Nouveau and Art Deco in Salamanca. Not to make profit but reflect his personal passion for Art Deco and especially to its architecture, Mr. Okroyan has been carefully gathering the masterpieces during over 20 years from various countries. At a rough estimate, the museum's collection of 900 sculptures made of ivory, marble and bronze, more than 500 items of furniture, and decorative arts is valued at $100 million. You will not meet at any Russian state museum the outstanding works, such as sculptures by Demetre Chiparus (famous figurines depicting dancers of Russian Ballet Seasons), Claire Colinet, Ferdinand Preiss or Bruno Zach, lacquered panels by Jean Dunand, consoles and lamps by Edgar Brandt, furniture by Paul Follot, Andre Arbus, Jules Lelue, Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann and others.
Art Deco Museum has become a perfect platform for educational programs for children and parents, and temporary expositions. Mkrtich Okroyan, the author of the book 'Art Deco Sculpture: From Root to Flourishing', has managed to gather a team of professionals, who have been leading wide range of educational and scientific-research activities over 10 years based on the museum's collection: expositions, lectures, seminars, master classes. Art Deco Museum plans to arrange a multimedia library, hold roundtables and conferences, involve actively students of Russian and European institutes of arts for studying and popularizing Art Deco style.
Among the 'Must See' exhibits of Art Deco Museum are 'Les Girls' by Demetre Chiparus, 'Set of Furniture for a Billiard Room' by Louis Majorelle, decorative panels by Pierre Bobot originated from Roseland Ballroom in New York, 'La Chasse' by Jean Dunand (small-scale author copy of the panel created for the 1st class smoking room of Normandie), 'The Fire and the Flame' by Ferdinand Preiss as well as Edgar Brandt pieces.
