The Artistic Legacy of the Klodt Family
23 december 2020—29 march 2021
Pyotr Klodt (Peter Jakob Clodt von Jurgensburg, 1805–1867) – was a renowned animalist sculptor, author of a famous group of equestrian statues, the Horse Tamers, installed at the Anichkov Bridge. Pyotr Klodt started an artistic dynasty, which creative heritage now presented in a large exhibition for the first time.
The Russian Museum keeps the finest collection of Pyotr Klodt's sculptural works. Along with unique author's wax sketches, received from the museum of the Imperial Academy of Arts, there are presented models of famous horse groups for Anichkov Bridge, the equestrian monument to Emperor Nicholas I, and the monument to Ivan Krylov, as well as bronze tides of famous animalistic statuettes. Another section of the exposition consists of painters' works - representatives of the Klodt family, members of the Association of Traveling Art Exhibitions: genre paintings by sculptor's son - Mikhail Petrovich Klodt (1835-1914) and works by his nephew - landscape painter Mikhail Konstantinovich Klodt (1833-1902). The creativity of these masters made an original page in the history of national art of the second half of the nineteenth century, brightly and versatilely reflecting important trends in its development. The exposition is supplemented by the works of Nikolay Alexandrovich Klodt (1865-1918), Peter Klodt's grandson, painter, and theatrical artist, as well as engraving samples with images of P. Klodt's works and portraits of his creative dynasty.
