To keep the homeland. Lithuania and Poland in the epoch of the 1791 Constitution

  • Year of release:2022
  • Price:45.00 €
This catalogue is dedicated to the international exhibition "To keep the homeland. Lithuania and Poland in the epoch of the 1791 Constitution", marking the historical fate of the united Polish and Lithuanian state, the hope for the rebirth of the nation and the state that shone out in the second half of the 18th century, and the tragic outcome, which was determined by the exclusively aggressive intentions and interests of the neighbours. The year 2021 marks the 230th anniversary of the promulgation of the Constitution of 3 May and the adoption of the Act of Mutual Obligation, or the Act of Mutual Pledge, between the two nations. Each anniversary provides an opportunity and an incentive to take a closer look at the facts of history and to reflect on the meanings, causes and consequences of the events of that time.

Tapestries of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania. Treasures acquired in 2011-2021, newly attributed works.

  • Year of release:2022
  • Price:30,00 €
The scientific catalogue presents in detail the collection of tapestries acquired by the Palace of the Grand Dukes between 2011 and 2021, which is unparalleled not only in Lithuania, but also in other Baltic countries, and has attracted the interest of the international scientific community. The first part of the publication gives an overview of the history of European tapestries, introduces the characteristics of the artistic fabrics, the factors that influenced their quality and value, the most important production centres, commissioners, weavers, artists and traders. All of them have had a decisive influence on the tapestry's astonishing story of glory, the success of which, like the fabrics themselves, has been determined by different artistic, political and economic aspirations and opportunities. The text, which is full of names, dates and titles, is interspersed with stories and comparisons to help us better understand the context, and at times to feel caught up in a whirlwind of historical facts.
