Dear friends and colleagues!

In continuing our tradition, it gives us a great pleasure to extend to you the exclusive opportunity to participate in the Eighth Hermitage Summer School, hosted in St. Petersburg, Russia.

UNDER OUR TRADITIONAL TITLE – “EIGHTH SUMMER SCHOOL "SAINT-PETERSBURG ART TREASURES” – YOU CAN FIND A NOVELTY.
FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS YEAR THE SCHOOL CONSISTS OF TWO COURSES INSTEAD OF ONE.
“IMPERIAL MASTERPIECES OF WESTERN ART” ARE NOW COUPLED WITH THE COUNTERPART – “IMPERIAL MASTERPIECES OF ORIENTAL ART”. HAVING ALREADY DUTCH, ITALIAN, RUSSIAN PROGRAMS IN OUR AGENDA, AS WELL AS COURSES FOCUSED ON THE APPLIED AND DECORATIVE ARTS AND THE ART OF GARDENING, WE DECIDED TO DOUBLE OUR PROGRAM THIS YEAR.

The program’s official dates are August 7-14, 2005, St. Petersburg, Russia.

The courses will be hosted at the world famous State Hermitage Museum and the prestigious European University at St. Petersburg.

The Summer School is designed for graduate students in the Humanities, art historians, historians, museum curators, teachers, and those who are independently interested in the history of Russian art and culture as well as the reception of Western and Oriental Art in Russia.

The curriculum follows the Romanovs throughout their dynasty as collectors of Art. The workshops and lectures are based on the vast collection of the State Hermitage Museum and the Imperial Palaces. The course also offers you an unprecedented access to art treasures that are not available to the general public and provides you with various opportunities to discuss the given collections directly with museum curators.

Lectures, workshops, and tours will be conducted in English.

The program will include alternating "Days In" with lectures and workshops in the State Hermitage Museum and "Days Out" with visits to Imperial residences in St. Petersburg and its surroundings.

Course capacity is limited. The cost includes tuition, lunches, access to museums and airport transfers.
Airfares and accommodations are not included.

We would be happy to see you among our participants for the summer 2005.

Sincerely,

Dr. Roman Grigoryev
