Though Ivan Prokofyev participated in creating of sculpture decoration for the buildings of Academy of Arts, Tauride Palace, Public Library, the Pavlovsk Palace, St. Michael’s Castle, the Kazan Cathedral etc., now his creative oeuvre is well-known to comparatively narrow circle of viewers and art historians.
250th anniversary of Ivan Prokofyev gave the opportunity to fill a gap. The Russian Museum opens a great exhibition of sculpture and drawings by this acknowledged master. The exhibition is accompanied by illustrated catalogue, where the basic part of his artworks is presented. It includes paintings from the collections of “Peterhof” and “Pavlovsk” Museums-Estates, as well as monumental works that were created for decorating of the architecture of Saint-Petersburg and suburban palace-and-park ensembles.
