Moscow hosts Native Home exhibition

Russian nobles who owned estates often ordered their servants to move furniture, paintings, chinaware and other household items from one estate to another. The servants of Count Pyotr Sheremetev moved various items from Kuskovo residence to his Moscow home, to his Fountain House in St Petersburg, to Markovo estate, to Mikhailovskoye estate and back.

Each heir to the Sheremetev estate expanded and upgraded the furniture and other items in his estates. Nikolai Sheremetev, the son of Pyotr Sheremetev built a palace-theatre at the family’s Ostankino fiefdom outside Moscow after his father’s death and conceived it as a temple of arts. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, many unique exhibits were moved from the family’s Kuskovo estate to Ostankino. The items also traveled from one estate to another during the division of property between heirs Sergei and Alexander Sheremetev after the death of Count Dmitry Sheremetev in 1871.

Archives and research papers make it possible to trace the history of items at two unique Russian estates before they became museums. A bronze fireplace clock with the figure of Clio, the Muse of History, will be the first exhibit of the project as part of a standard bedroom interior. The clock that stood there, according to a palace inventory dating to the 1780s, has now been returned to its first location, helping to restore the original interior of Kuskovo palace.
