The sketches and drawings of Mikhail Makhayev (1717–1770), the great Russian 18th-century veduta master, are the only way we have of appreciating St Petersburg’s stately appearance during the mid-18th century. The exhibition features approximately 100 works: Mikhail Makhayev’s drawings, engravings, and paintings made from his drawings by Russian and Western European artists, as well as the engraved copper plates used to print St Petersburg city views in the mid-18th century.

Naum Mogilevsky was one of the most outstanding artists of the circle that gravitated around the great sculptor and artistic mentor Alexander Matveyev. And yet his work has received very little scholarly attention and is practically unknown to many art lovers. This exhibition, including approximately 30 sculptures and 40 drawings, invites the audience to rediscover a forgotten master and explore the many facets of his talent.
