Portrait of a Revolution – Russia Season at the Sainsbury Centre

Guest blog by Caitlin Kelly

This October marks the centenary of one of the most profound and controversial events of the 20th century: the Russian Revolution, and whilst the autumnal chill of Norwich is merely insignificant compared to the sub-zero climate of Russia, it is rather fitting for the occasion when exploring the Sainsbury Centre’s most recent special exhibition. The Russia Season is composed of two unique exhibits – Royal Fabergé and Radical Russia, the former illustrating the art and opulence of Imperial Russia, and the latter exploring the starkly contrasting and revolutionary abstract and modern art which emerged following the execution of the Romanov Tsar Nicholas II and the creation of Lenin’s soviet state.

Looking ahead….

Well the weather has certainly become much more autumnal and I think we have now waved good-bye to summer.

Blues skies ahead

What a beautiful day we had last Friday – blue skies, glorious sunshine and magnificent landscapes.
