The Hermitage has launched stickers for the Telegram based on works of Rembrandt and Matisse
The State Hermitage Museum has issued an official sticker set for its Telegram channel. The paintings by Rembrandt and Matisse became the source of inspiration for the new set.
"Self-Portrait in a Cap, Open-Mouthed" by Rembrandt has served as a prototype of one of the stickers. This etching has been produced, just like many other self-portraits, was drawn in Leiden. The young artist has been studying techniques in order to express different emotional stated through the etching, which at that time, was a new form of art for him.
In total there are 24 stickers, including the logo of the Museum, the repentant Mary Magdalen (the artwork by Titian, painted in 1565th), and the fragment of the "Dance" by Henri Matisse.
The museum has been open in 1764, right after the Catherine the 2nd has purchased the collection of paintings of Berlin merchant Gotskovsky. Now, the State Hermitage Museum holds the collection of about 3 million pieces of art, including pictural art, graphic arts, sculpture, and artware, archeological excavations and numismatic material.
