The days of the Hermitage will be held in St. Petersburg

The Hermitage has prepared a special program on the occasion of its birthday, which will be celebrated from December 2 to December 12. According to the city's tourist portal Visit Petersburg, the peak of the celebrations will be on December 7, the day of the museum patroness St. Catherine, when you can visit the Hermitage for free.

In particular, on this day the museum will open the exhibition "Sevres porcelain and imitations. From worship to deception." Guests will learn what the "enamel decor", which was loved by Queen Marie Antoinette of France, is and will be able to see the difference between a genuine masterpiece and skillful imitations.

"From December 8, you can visit the exhibition "Salons of Denis Diderot. Exhibitions of contemporary art in 18th century Paris". The central part of the exhibition will be dedicated to the famous Salons of the famous French philosopher and writer. You will be able to see paintings, graphics and sculptures exhibited in the Louvre throughout the XVIII century," says the portal.

In addition, as part of the Hermitage Days, a grandiose 3D mapping show will be held on the evenings of December 9 and 10 on the Palace Square of St. Petersburg. This is a light performance that will unfold on the facades of the General Staff and the Headquarters of the Horse Guards Regiment.

"The first part will be dedicated to the 320th anniversary of St. Petersburg. And the second one will demonstrate the works of 10 finalists of the All-Russian competition of modern media art "Land of Light". Viewers will be able to vote online for the team they like," Visit Petersburg reports.
