Impérial Saint-Pétersbourg, de Pierre le Grand à Catherine II
Imperial Saint-Petersbourg, from Pierre le Grand to Catherine II
From july 17 to september 12 2004
Over 450 works from prestigious collections have us relive the greater moments of Saint Petersburg. A century of the city's metamorphosis, from its foundation by Peter the Great in 1703, to the end of the reign of Catherine II in 1796, who gathered a real collection of paintings in which Poussin rubbed elbows with Van Dyck and Watteau.
