The US Faberge Arts Foundation collected money here for opening the first museum of the world-famous Russian jeweler in St. Petersburg
"The State Hermitage plans to create a Carl Faberge Museum," Russian Ambassador to the USA Yuri Ushakov said at a ceremonious party in the Russian embassy. He thanked the Faberge Arts Foundation "for introducing Americans to the unique treasures of Russia and for supporting our culture institutions." Mikhail Piotrovsky, director of the Hermitage who is on a working visit in the US, was a guest of honor at the party. He told journalists that the Carl Faberge museum would feature exhibits from the collections of the Hermitage and other Russian and foreign museums. The Washington-based Faberge Arts Foundation plans to render all-round assistance to the opening of the first Faberge museum in Russia and the creation of its exposition in St. Petersburg. Van Cliburn, the famed American pianist, came from Texas to support the project and perform at the party. Carl Faberge (1846-1920) was a court jeweler of the Russian emperor and won world fame with a collection of Easter eggs exhibited at the 1900 Paris Fair. He emigrated after the 1917 October revolution and died in Lozanne, Switzerland
