    “DO NOT BELIEVE YOUR EYES. TROMPE-L’OEIL IN ART”
    “DO NOT BELIEVE YOUR EYES. TROMPE-L’OEIL IN ART”
    The exhibition shows a variety of visual ‘deceptions’: creating illusions of three-dimensionality, imitating various objects or materials. It includes over 700 exhibits from the Hermitage collection encompassing the period from Ancient Egypt to the early 20th century, including Eastern countries, Europe and Russia – paintings, watercolours, drawings, fabrics, furniture, silver, glass and porcelain. Viewers will be drawn into a fascinating game of trying to decipher illusory objects and will find themselves unexpectedly in a study-library, an art gallery, a wealthy house, a peasant hut and other reconstructions and scenarios in which almost all the exhibits ‘deceive’ them by their outward plausibility and, at the same time, fascinate them by its finesse.
