At the exhibition in the halls of the palace that belonged to the Stroganovs, the Russian Museum will show 60 wonderful drawings from its collection for the first time and comment in a multimedia show how their research was carried out, which made it possible to prove the authorship of Count Pavel Stroganov.

It was these places that awakened creativity in the young representative of the Stroganov dynasty of collectors, largely predetermining also a passionate interest in the landscapes of his own country and the creation of his own art collection.
