Veer combined the skills of a lacemaker, engraver, painter, carver, jeweler, turning from an expensive overseas souvenir into an exquisite accessory for a ladies’ toilet. From the end of the XVII century until the 1920s, he served his owners, changing with the trends of capricious fashion. The fan showed the lady’s taste and social status, skillful possession of them made it possible to emphasize the virtues and hide the shortcomings of its owner. The age of flirtatious marquises and seductive gentlemen created the "language of the fan", which allows not to conceal their sympathies in the world.
Peter the Great got into the Russian Empire - that’s what they used to call fans — in the 18th century, and they came into fashion with the accession to the throne of Elizabeth Petrovna, a famous fashionista, and already under Catherine II they became an integral part of the ladies’ toilet.
At the exhibition of the collection of Olga Zateeva at the Khazine National Art Gallery of the Pushkin Museum of the Republic of Tatarstan, fans are presented whose screens are decorated with plots reflecting the reign of a certain historical figure or character (“King of the Sun” Louis XIV, Marquise Pompadour and others); a fan for visiting a church or theater, for an important visit or a walk, and, above all, for a ball; fans, the details of which are made of mother of pearl, gold, silver and bone, decorated with flowers, genre scenes and ornaments.
Complement the exhibition of engravings of the XVIII century with the image of beautiful ladies, on the themes "Seasons", "Five Senses", etc., plot engravings.
Kazan citizens and guests of our city have a great opportunity to get acquainted with a wonderful collection of fans - these oromantized witnesses of past eras.
The exhibition runs through June 30, 2019.
