Pavel Stroganov. Italian Journey


The State Russian Museum holds an exhibition "Pavel Stroganov. Italian Journey".

At the exhibition in the halls of the palace, which belonged to the Stroganoffs, the Russian Museum for the first time will show 60 remarkable drawings from its collection and comment on their investigation in a multimedia version, which allowed to prove the authorship of Count Stroganoff.

Count Pavel Stroganoff (1823-1911) is the great-grandson of the famous Alexander Stroganoff, the owner of the Stroganoff Palace, patron of the arts, one of the most influential representatives of the nobility in the Russian society in the late 18th - early 19th centuries. Pavel Stroganov, accompanied by his father, Count Stroganov (1794-1882), and his family on their journey to Italy in 1839-1841, depicted that country in numerous drawings that, until recently, had been considered the work of an unknown master.

Prepared according to the materials of the official website State Russian Museum.
