12 What Does The Hermitage Storage Conceal?

What Does The Hermitage Storage Conceal?

Posted on October 18, 2010 by team

Today we are going to visit the tempera painting restoration laboratory and the restoration – depositary center of the Hermitage, in which more than 1.2 million displays are kept.

Here is a quick excursion trough the storage and other restoration workrooms of the Hermitage.

Under the storage functions a class for blind and visually impaired “The Past on Fingertips”. There they can find out more about archeology, “touch” the past with the help of special models. For example in this picture you can see the model of a real ancient Russian settlement. All details are much  textured, and can say a lot to the sensitive fingers of  the blind.

Here is for example a pair from the Ancient Pskov and two curious bloggers.

    I once visited one of these restauration ateliers, where a friend of ours was restoring an 11th century wall painting. Impressive to see the Hermitage “behind the scenes”, there is in fact a kind of second museum there, at least as big as what is open for the public.
