Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Launches Digital Fabergé Archive

From Art Daily:

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts announced the launch of its first digital archive, which documents the formation of the museum’s renowned Fabergé and Russian decorative arts collection at www.faberge.vmfa.museum. Organized through the museum’s Margaret R. and Robert M. Freeman Library, this project was made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.


More than 700 items have been digitized, resulting in 1,500 downloadable image files, all of which are available to the public via a new online portal dedicated to digital resources about Fabergé and Russian decorative arts.  

From the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts:

The website also features many educational resources on the collection itself, including newly filmed videos of the eggs opening, interactive 360° views of the eggs, and recently digitized rare books related to Fabergé
