Anna,
Where and when is the exhibit in Amsterdam going to be? Living in Germany, I can probably get there very easily.
By the way, do you live in the Netherlands?



Hi Johnny,

Yes I live in the Netherlands. Here you will find info about the exhibit in A'dam. You're more than welcome ;)

The exibition about Nicholas and Alexandra in the little  
Hermitage in Amsterdam, is planned from 18-09-2004 till  
13-02-2005.

Take care.

Anna

Dear Melissa,  because Kenneth Pushkin, (connected to this event)"who sells 20th-century, Soviet-era Russian art from his gallery on leafy Canyon Road, hopes the summer’s events will create a lasting interest in Russian culture"...do you think that gracious, but to the point  letters addressing the problem, would get his attention. As he is supposed to be passionate about certain Russian themes, this would at least let them know that the slipshod verbal presentations don't go unnoticed...and that many people are aware, and care.

Just a thought,

Sunny

Can you tell us more about the exhibition itself.  I heard the exhibition is set up like some of the rooms in the palace.  Is this true?  How did you like Alexandra's dresses?  What object did you find the most interesting?  Was there a large display of the children's toys?  What did you think of Alexei's christening gown?

Dear Melissa,

Thanks so much for your account on the exhibition!

The palace´s sketches should be so interesting! For what you saw, i understand that they have almost all the original things(at least the most important) that were exhibited in the Alexander palace.
The sample of fabric from the children rooms i have never seen. Neither i saw the Annunciation painting....
So great all these things are preserved!!!

Thanks for the reply.  I can't want to see it. ;)

Also, I got an email from the museum in Cincinnati stating that the tickets will go on sale in August.

My question is, will they let people bring cameras to take pictures of everything? Or do they not want cameras going off while other people are trying to look at the exhibit? ???

Melissa, much gratitude for your touching descriptions of
the exhibition...lovely to "see" it through your eyes.
Hope that SM is able to put things to rights in any way possible. When I was much younger, and incorrect information was passed along (either in school, or conversation) about the IF, it was quite lonely being a solo voice for some truth on the subject. The passion, knowledge, and camaraderie shared at this forum are pure pleasure.

Thanks again,

Sunny

I had planned to take quite a few photos when we visit Santa Fe week after next. However, my sister says no photography is allowed. I will be given a PR package that contains photos and these will all be turned over to the APTM for use on our website.

Here is the link for the Cincinnati Museum.

I got an email from them saying they are still working on putting the At Home with the Tsar information on the site.

The more I hear about this exhibit, the less inclined I am to go to N.M. to see it ! I understand it will be in N.J. in the autumn. I think they may do a better job of presenting it, at least better docents. Also, it is on the way for my annual stay in England!
Cheers
Robert

cameras, like mobile phones are rude & inconsiderate in museums just as in theatres & movie houses.  There may be exceptions for digital cameras, but I have not heard of any.
