Engraving had the important role in the Russian art until the beginning of the 20th century, when the Russian society had the requirements in the printed copies from different originals of images. But the history of the development of engraving on metal from the moment of its appearance in Russian art till nowadays is less known to the viewers. The exhibition for the first time presents so widely and fully this view of art on the example of engravings of the 17-19th centuries from the collection of the Russian Museum. Also there are presented the brass plates and instruments that were used by artists during the process of creation of engravings.

The exhibition was prepared for the 200th anniversary of one of the most famous and frequently cited Russian writers - Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821-1881).
His training at the Engineering School (in the 1840s), located in the Mikhailovsky (Engineering) Castle (now a branch of the Russian Museum), is an excellent occasion for the Russian Museum to pay tribute to the memory of one of the authors of the Petersburg myth by presenting an exposition of works from the museum collection in honor of this anniversary.
