Palaces in St. Petersburg / St. Petersburg Flood 1824 & 1924
« on: February 19, 2017, 01:50:06 PM »
The floods in St. Petersburg in 1824 and 1924 were catastrophic. Damages were extensive i.e. in the basement and 1st floor of the Winter Palace. I have read of other buildings such as Mariinsky Theatre but I am curious of the other palaces along both the Palace and Admiralty Embankments.

French Royals / Pierre Gouthičre

Beautiful examples – “The gilding of perfection - the work of Pierre Gouthičre”

… But to his original clients and to his latter-day "fans" - count me in, whole-heartedly - he was truly a great artist, a genius, one of the greatest craftsmen of all time…
