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.

This large painted portrait of Gavriil Derzhavin (1743–1816) normally graces the walls of the Irkutsk Art Museum. The label that comes with the portrait bears the painter’s name: Salvatore Tonci. In 2023, when the painting became available for study at the Russian Museum, the staff of the museum’s Department of Technological Research discovered a feature invisible to the human eye underneath the surface coat of paint. Depicting the head and arm of an angel, it matchedan image we find on a certain sketch by famous Russian painter Alexei Egorov.
