Lacquer Art Presented to Bill Clinton:Dmitriev, Dmitriyev, Razin

The images here, including a menu and a signed photograph, were given to us by Sergey Dmitriev, a renowned Kholuy artist. It is his piece entitled "Stenka Razin--From Beyond the Island to the River Deep" that was presented to then-President Bill Clinton when he visited the Senat Restaurant during his stay in St. Petersburg. Along with the box, President Clinton was given a book on Kholuy art entitled Kholuy Lacquer Miniatures by Anatoliy Kamorin, in which Dmitriev's work "Vasilisa the Beautiful" depicted. Afterwards, Clinton was treated to a first-class Russian dinner, which is now advertised on the Senat menu as the meal served to him.
