Built for Catherine the Great's son and heir, Pavel Petrovich, the Palace of Pavlovsk is one of the finest imperial residences in the Saint Petersburg area. Known for its sumptuous yet intimate interiors as well as its 1,200 acre park, Pavlovsk also houses one of Russia's most spectacular and important collections of 18th and 19th century decorative arts.
An informative and historically fascinating text is accompanied by comprehensive views of the palace interiors and exteriors, its art treasures and the park to form the most important work of reference ever published on this palace.
Volume 1 describes the palace architecture, its interiors, and the park with its wonderful Temple of Friendship and other pavilions and follies.
Volume 2 features the extensive collections formed by Maria Feodorovna and Tsar Paul I, including the furniture, paintings, sculptures, tapestries, and porcelain.
