Moscow exhibits ‘The Treasures of Troy’
Abstract:In 1993 the Pushkin Museum in Moscow made a startling announcement: the long-lost treasure of ‘Trojan gold’ which had disappeared from Berlin during the chaos of the Second World War had been lying intact in the museum’s stores since 1945 and would shortly go on display. The story of discovery and rediscovery is told by Lyudmila Akimova, who heads the ancient art and archaeology department of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow. She has written three books and some fifty articles on ancient art and has been working on the Trojan treasures since 1993.
