The State Hermitage

Impossible to do justice to 3
million works of art, even in a
2,000 page, two volume boxed
set, the obvious solution
would have been to present
annotated highlights. Instead,
we used the space to create
relationships and tension
between selected works. The
Hermitage curators loved it
but we ruffled the feathers of
a few of the more traditional
art critics.
