Russian cultural riches to be licensed for home furnishings
April 27, 2006,
New York – The archives and architecture of the great Russian palaces and museums will be available to Americans through an extensive new home furnishings licensing program.
The properties involved include The Hermitage, the Winter Palace, Pavlovsk Palace and Park, and the Catherine Palace Museum. As an example of the scope of the collections, Glasser pointed out, "The Hermitage’s collection alone is so large that it would take years to view it in its entirety."
