The collection is made up of pieces purchased over the past five years by the billionaire Russian industrialist Victor Vekselberg. In April 2004, Vekselberg bought nine Faberge eggs from the American family of the late Malcolm Forbes, publisher of Forbes Magazine, for over 100 million dollars.

The exhibition will be held through June 28 (extended to) August 8, 2009 in the Department of private collections at the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts.
