The Detroit Institute of Arts presents a slideshow and discussion on the rise and fall of Faberge. The collection, currently on display at the DIA, features more than 200 unique objects from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, which houses the largest collection of Faberge in the United States. The discussion will highlight Karl Fabergé’s rise to fame, his ambition, artistic innovations, and privileged relationship with the Russian aristocracy. Despite the firm's abrupt end with the Russian revolution, in 1918, the legacy and name of Fabergé continues to hold a place in popular culture.
