Fabergé Rediscovered

November 28 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

On Wednesday, November 28, Rago Auctions hosts Chief Curator of Hillwood Estate, Dr. Wilfried Zeisler, as he delivers a presentation titled “Fabergé Rediscovered.”

This presentation will explore Hillwood’s exhibition “Fabergé Rediscovered” and unveil recent research and discoveries relating to the museum’s collection of about 90 pieces by the famous Russian jeweler Fabergé. Most of Hillwood’s works of art by Fabergé belonged to Marjorie Merriweather Post (1887-1973), founder of the museum. The presentation will highlight new attributions and provenances for these pieces and provide a broader framework for the study and appreciation of 19th-20th century jewelry and goldsmithing.

Dr. Wilfried Zeisler is a graduate of Sorbonne University and the Ecole du Louvre, Paris. Wilfried has written extensively on French and Russian decorative arts, including a 2010 book on French ceramics commemorating the Franco-Russian Alliance, several articles, and contributions to books such as “Artistic Luxury: Fabergé, Tiffany, Lalique” (2008). Wilfried’s dissertation “L’Objet d’art et de luxe français en Russie” (1881-1917) [French Objets d’art and Luxury Goods in Russia], was published in Paris in 2014. Between 2009 and 2011, he has participated in and curated exhibitions in Paris and Monaco. At Hillwood, he has curated ”Splendor and Surprise: Elegant Containers, Antique to Modern” (2015), ”Konstantin Makovsky: The Tsar’s Painter” (2016), and “Fabergé Rediscovered” (2018). Wilfried co-authored “Konstantin Makovsky: The Tsar’s Painter in America and Paris” (2015) and is the author of “Fabergé Rediscovered” (2018).

The auction house opens on Wednesday, November 28 at noon. A wine and cheese reception begins at 5 pm. The presentation will begin at 6 pm.
