Engraved views of the environs of St Petersburg (Bicentenary exhibition marking the creation of the original series after the paintings of Semyon Schedrin)

13 july 2000—11 september 2000
The exhibition presented a series of easel engravings of the palace and park landscapes in Gatchina, Peterhof and Stone Island - the favourite places of Emperor Paul I (1796-1801), who originally commissioned the series. The engravings were made between 1800 and 1813 by masters of the Imperial Academy of Arts. The series was based on the landscapes of Semyon Schedrin, who painted numerous views of Tsarskoe Selo, Peterhof, Pavlovsk and Gatchina. The artist initiated the foundation of the studio of landscape engraving at the Imperial Academy of Arts, and headed it from 1799 to 1804. The main task of the studio was to fulfill the commission of Emperor Paul I. Ignatius Sebastian Clauber, a famous Paris engraver, contributed much to the development of engraving in Russia while working on this unique series. An admirer of the English school of landscape painting, Clauber headed the engraving class from 1796 to 1817.
