Museums - Спец. выпуск


This special issue tells about the collection of the State Museum Reserve Peterhof. The museum specialists remember and estimate the history of this wonderful place. In Peter the Great times, the first Russian stone-cutting industry (Peterhof grinding mill) was founded and greatly developed. Subsequently, the mill was renamed into the Peterhof lapidary works and took the participation in decorating of Saint Petersburg palaces and mansions. This mill was a workplace for a constellation of outstanding stonecutters. A part of a small pamphlet (1921; authors: A. E. Fersman and N. I. Vlodavets) is published in this issue. The pamphlet, devoted to the history of the first state stone-processing plant, has never been republished and became the bibliographic rarity. Nowadays, readers have the possibility to read it again.


Besides the articles about the Peterhof fountains, this issue mainly tells about stone and metal museum collections, and their bright and interesting history: architecture details, sculpture, decorative and applied arts masterpieces, etc. We hope, that these materials will show the other side of the Peterhof history.


You may find below more details about the issue or book printed or electronic version of the journal.
