100th anniversary of the Panorama Borodino

The Museum-panorama the Battle of Borodino in Moscow, Russia celebrates two remarkable events – the 200th anniversary of the Borodino victory of 1812 and the 100th anniversary of the Borodino panorama created by the outstanding panorama painter Franz Roubaud.

In June 2011 the restoration and repair works started in the Museum-panorama. It has been a first extensive restoration of the panorama since it was re-established in the 1960s. The restoration project took 9 months and resulted in reinventing the museum as a technically well equipped museum. At the same time the museum saves the traditional way of presentation the exposition where the highlight is the classical panorama of the battle of Borodino.

The Museum-panorama the Battle of Borodino would like to inform of the forthcoming celebration of 100th anniversary of the panorama Borodino which is planned to be held on October 18, 2012. The program includes: a scholar session on history and panorama problems «One hundred years together. Museums and panoramas in 20th - 21st century», an official ceremony, and a presentation of a catalogue on Franz Roubaud (by E. Lingenauber, Monaco, and O. Sugrobova-Roth, Germany).

You are very welcomed to participate in the scholar session with a short presentation or a speech. Please contact the museum: Marina Zboevskaya, Marketing department, Museum-panorama the Battle of Borodino, mpbb@mail.ru, Tel. +7 499 148 1851
