Full Description
Peterhof is a place with special energy, a reflection of the inner world of its founder, Emperor Peter the Great. The development of the residence, which was built on the coast of the Baltic, reflects all the artistic styles of the past and the personal tastes and preferences of every Russian monarch. The works of art in the Peterhof collection were created or acquired by the crowned owners of palaces and parks to decorate them. "There is a soul in every museum object," says Director Elena Kalnitskaya, and this is clear in each work of art presented in this book. Each object, tells its own story, but also invites the reader to better understand the history of Russia.
