Caroline de Guitaut, curator of Decorative Arts at the Royal Collection Trust in London, presents Carl Fabergé, Imperial Jeweler to the Tsars, a lecture on the life of Peter Carl Fabergé and his remarkable House of Fabergé. While in his Russian homeland, Fabergé crafted exquisite jeweled creations that became the favorites of both aristocrats and royalty including Alexander III and Nicholas II. Fabergé was forced to flee Russia during the Revolution, his shops seized by the Soviets and his craftsmen scattered across Europe bringing an end to an era. This lecture is presented in association with the exhibit ''Fabergé: A Brilliant Vision'' currently on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
Mon., Feb. 25, 6:30 p.m., 2013
