Between 1885 and 1916, the Russian Imperial family had some rather fancy, bejeweled eggs created for them by the House of Fabergé. About 50 eggs were made, 42 of which survived (it must suck to be the guy that dropped one). Dr. Scott Ruby, Curator of Russian and European Art at Hillwood Estate in D.C. knows a thing or two about the egg-based masterpieces, and he'll be a the Bruce Museum Tuesday afternoon to talk about them. It'll be the first in a series of lectures in conjunction with Eggshibition: Unscrambling Their History.
