Restoration of the Painting and Its Original Frame. Konstantin Makovsky. National Fête During Shrovetide on Admiralty Square in St Petersburg
23 February 2023—17 April 2023

The exhibition in the Garden Vestibule of the Mikhailovsky Palace is dedicated to the restoration of a large-scale painting National Fête During Shrovetide on Admiralty Square in St Petersburg (215 х 321 cm) by Konstantin Makovsky and its original frame.

Konstantin Makovsky painted National Fête During Shrovetide on Admiralty Square in St Petersburg in 1869, and in the same year the artist was made a professor of the Imperial Academy of Arts for this painting as well as for some other works. The painting depicts one of the most popular folk holidays symbolising the end of winter and the arrival of spring. The Russian Museum received the canvas from the Gatchina Palace in 1897. The long time of existence of this 150-year-old canvas and changing historical conditions have left their impact on the painting.

 Full-scale comprehensive restoration of Konstantin Makovsky’s canvas National Fête During Shrovetide on Admiralty Square in St Petersburg (restorers Marat Dashkin and Olga Klyonova) was completed in the Russian Museum on the eve of the 2023 Shrovetide.

 With support from Gazprom, partner of the Russian Museum restoration projects.
