About this title

Synopsis:

This publication is devoted to the buildings of Russia's State Hermitage, a celebrated architectural ensemble, the pride of St Petersburg, Russian culture and architecture. Readers will be able to appreciate the beauty of the museum's magnificent edifices and halls and also to learn about their creation and long history. The book gives a broad panoramic view of the Hermitage's architectural biography from St Petersburg's first palaces, some lost, others miraculously preserved and part of the museum complex, by way of the tremendous Winter Palace, the creation of the great Rastrelli and official residence of Russia's imperial rulers, and the buildings of the Imperial Museum to the latest museum facility, the twenty first century repository in Staraya Derevnia. Historical watercolours, drawings and old photographs make it possible to compare the original and present day appearance of the buildings and halls, to appreciate their unique state of preservation, authenticity and stylistic variety, as well as the great labour, taste and skill of those who created these great masterpieces of Russian architecture - architects, builders, craftsmen and restorers. The book also features the displays in halls throughout the museum complex: many of the interiors include depictions of the treasures they contain.
