Exhibition on display in the Academic Halls № 14 and № 15 of the Mikhailovsky Palace.
The exhibition shows engravings and lithographs from the collection of the Russian Museum devoted to the suburbs of St Petersburg. A wide panorama of the city's surroundings offers a rare opportunity to see what the buildings and parks of Tsarskoye Selo and Pavlovsk, now partially missing their original appearance, used to look like in the 19th century. The art of architecture and landscaping at the time was of a very high standard. "Here nature has become art, and art resembles real nature", so it was said of the parks in the suburbs of the capital and Pavlovsk in particular.
The graphic sheets also depict significant historical and cultural events associated with the St Petersburg suburbs: the opening of the first Russian railroad between St Petersburg and Tsarskoye Selo and the famous concerts of Johann Strauss in Pavlovsk.

The exhibition “30 paintings from the life of Peter the Great” is taking place on the Field of Mars in Saint Petersburg. The project is a reconstruction of an exhibit that was held 150 years ago at the same location and is dedicated to the 350th anniversary of the first Russian emperor. Fourteen original paintings from the 1872 exhibition were discovered in the State Russian Museum’s funds. They were digitally restored and will be exhibited in the form of outstanding quality canvas prints. The honour to fill the gaps and create modern interpretations of the same historical subjects was granted to the students, alumni and professors of Saint-Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts.
