A multimedia film is devoted to Georg Christoph Grooth, the main court painter of the epoch of Elizabeth Petrovna and the art of that time.
The programme was developed based on the temporary exhibition Peter the Great: His Era and His Inner Circle, which took place in the Russian Museum from December 17, 2015 to April 3, 2016.
Multimedia program combines about 500 works of Russian artists who worked in Italy and of Italian masters who left their trace in Russian art, including those who contrib¬uted greatly to the architectural image of the Russian Museum palaces.
The program presents the oldest St. Petersburg park, which has been part of the Russian Museum since 2003. The Summer Garden is the favourite brainchild of Peter the Great. It was created at the beginning of the 18th century following the traditions of the best examples of European Parks and Gardens.
Nikolai Smirnov is the truly unique artist. The art historian by education, he became to work as the professional painter at the age of 39. He created his own way in the art - the so-called historical still life or, according to the painter's definition, "the historical theatre of the things". He worked as the painter comparatively not long - just more than twenty five years. For these years he had time to create the works which acquired the world recognition and instantly turned into the object of collection. This film will introduce you to the world of Nikolay Smirnov.
This film is focused on Vladimir Borovikovsky, one of the talented and original artists of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. He worked in the field of portrait and icon-painting.
