Symposium: “'One Heart, One Way’: The Journey of a Princely Art Collection”
The international symposium will accompany the exhibition of the same name at the Georgia Museum of Art. The works included in this show date from 1660 to 1917 and were passed from one generation to the next in the same Russian aristocratic family the Princes Belosselsky-Belozersky who trace their origins to the legendary founder of the medieval state of Kievan Rus’ the Viking Prince Riurik of Jutland (reign 862-879). In 862 Riurik bestowed on one of his two brothers the vast Belozersky (“White Lake”) domain in Northeastern Europe, hence the dynastic name. For centuries the family crest has included a motto referring to an honorable singleness of mind and action, a quote from the Book of Prophet Jeremiah 32:39—“One heart, one way.”
This exhibition is on display at the Georgia Museum of Art through Jan. 6, 2019.
Sponsors: Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, Lamar Dodd School of Art, Georgia Museum of Art
