It is interesting.
In Russia in the 18th century Mosaic art tried to revive M. V. Lomonosov, who set up the production of smalt at a factory near St. Petersburg and carried out a large mosaic "The Battle of Poltava". In 1864, a department was opened at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, which trained mosaic masters. The next revival of the art of mosaic survived in the era of modernity (mosaic decoration of architectural buildings by A. Gaudi, mosaics by G. Klimt in Austria, M. A. Vrubel — in Russia). In the 20th century many remarkable masters worked in the mosaic technique: D. Rivera, D. Siqueiros, R. Guttuso, A. M. Vasnetsov, A. A. Deineka, P. D. Korin, N. A. Andronov, etc.
