Dr. Wilfried Zeisler is Hillwood’s chief curator. He is a graduate of Sorbonne University and the École du Louvre. Zeisler has written extensively on the decorative arts in France and Russia, including a 2010 book on ceramics. His dissertation, L’Objet d’art et de luxe francais en Russie (1881-1917), was published in 2014. He has participated in and curated exhibitions in Paris and Monaco. At Hillwood, he curated Splendor and Surprise: Elegant Containers, Antique to Modern (2015) and Konstantin Makovsky: The Tsar’s Painter (2016). Zeisler co-authored the latter exhibition’s accompanying book, Konstantin Makovsky: The Tsar’s Painter in America and Paris (2015).
A full-color, 224-page companion catalog of the same title and authored by Zeisler has been published in partnership with Giles in conjunction with the exhibition. The lavishly illustrated book focuses on the recent research into Fabergé, providing revelations from the Russian public archives, and the discovery of objects thought to be lost that have brought to light new information about Fabergé’s career and his creations. With new photography and illuminating focus spreads by Fabergé experts, this new volume presents the firm in the broader history of 19th- to 20th-century jewelry and goldsmithing, documents new attributions and provenances, and examines our continuing fascination with Fabergé’s remarkable work.
