OOP Imperial Russian Exhibit
- For those of you in or near the San Francisco Bay Area you may want
to go see this Russian exhibit at the Presidio's Officer's Club
Unseen Treasures Imperial Russia and the New World.
Though all the exhibition material is out of period much of the art
can be traced back to period. I saw it this afternoon. Go see it if
you can. They have a nice audio tour that accompanies it. There are
examples of embroidery, kokoshniks and sarafans, wood carvings, and a
prialka for spinning linen.
