2015: Acclaim for Hermitage Foundation publication of Catalogue of Persian Paintings (2012)

‘A lifetime’s work and well worth it: Scholars will treasure this catalogue of the Hermitage’s Persian art.’

Adel Adamova, Persian Manuscripts, Paintings and Drawings from the 15th to the Early 20th Century in the Hermitage Collection

Thanks to a Hermitage UK Friends initiative in 2012 the English-language version of Adel Adamova’s catalogue of Persian art in the Hermitage was published by Azimuth Editions (distributed by Thames & Hudson). It has proved both a popular and critical success. The Hermitage UK Friends not only proposed publishing Adel Adamova’s Russian-language catalogue for European scholars but we organised the translation and raised the money for publication.

This is not our first successful publishing project bringing knowledge about the Hermitage collections to scholars and art lovers across the world, nor will it be our last.
