Stone Carving Department was open in the late 50-ies of the XX century. Hundreds of talented sculptors, painters, stone-cutters have graduated from it since then. The collection mainly consists of the students’ diploma and term works.
The works are made of different types of stone. Generally it is soft stone (gypsum, talc, selenite, calcite). The stone of these species is easy to process and express the warmth of the artist’s hands.
Skillful work reveals the natural beauty of the stone in Abramtsevo stone-cutters’ creations: small sculptures, decorative panels, vases, lamps, garden furniture with white stone carving. The collection includes the best works of Abramtsevo College graduates.
