Dvortsy i sady Russkogo muzeia (Palaces and Gardens of the Russian Museum)

St. Petersburg: Rus muz, 2005. Sewn cl. The Russian Museum now comprises four of St. Petersburg’s great palaces: the Stroganov Palace of the 1750s by the great architect of Russian baroque Francesco Rastrelli (with early nineteenth-century interiors by A. Voronikhin); the Marble Palace of the 1780s designed by Antonio Rinaldi; the Archangel Michael Castle (Engineers Castle) of the 1790s built to plans of Ivan Bazhenov and Vincenco Brenna, and Carlo Rossi’s Michael Palace of the 1820s. Together the buildings and interiors provide an excellent overview of several styles of Russian architecture and design. The last chapter, on the Summer Gardens, displays the early eighteenth-century Summer Palace built for Peter the Great, the gardens' monumental iron fence, and some of the works of Italian sculpture exhibited in the Summer Gardens. 132 pp., 9 x 8 ins., 142 color illus., sewn cl., Rus.
