Watches as an Art

For already several centuries watches have been accompanying people everywhere. In course of time watches became so important to people that their making was no longer limited to simple traditional schemes. More and more complicated designs were created by watchmakers who really love their work. Surfaces of miniature mechanism details started to be decorated with pinpoint accuracy, creative approaches started to be used in decoration of watch cases. High watch-making art has not only changed the appearance of watches, but it also changed their purpose, granting them an ability to speak the language of artistic forms.

The Florentine mosaic art has reached unprecedented heights in our country owing to a wide diversity of national semi-precious raw materials and an almost two centuries old artistic tradition of this kind of the applied art. Currently objects of “painting in stone” are created both in monumental form (for example, mosaic panels in a number of halls of the Moscow metro stations) and in small forms (as inlays in jewellery items) and they know no equals in the world. During the lecture it is expected not only to provide brief review of the history of development of Florentine mosaic technique in Russia and Europe, but to characterize a group of modern craftsmen and their main achievements as well.
