Collection Catalogues

Bronze Horseman is attuned to the publishing projects of museums in Russia and stocks books essential for reference libraries and scholars. The Hermitage, Pavlovsk Palace-Museum, the Museum of the History of Religion, and the Tretyakov Gallery are a few of the museums in Russia currently publishing comprehensive catalogues of their collections. Based on years of research and published infrequently, collection catalogues are an event in a museum’s history and a boon to the study of its collections. They illustrate the works, update attributions, correct dates, offer new information on artists and sitters, and fix current preservation status.
