Exhibits from private collections included in to the book "Russian Enamel of the late 20th century" are among the best works created over the past fifteen years by the well-known Rostov enamelers. Author of the book and owner of a unique collection is Vladislav I. Sivtsov. A faculty of the Nikolai Bauman Moscow State Technological University, Doctor of Technology, he never belonged to the so-called "millionschiki" or Russian millionaires that used to sponsor arts and to collect works of art in the late 19th century and early 20th century.
