Christine - (formerly tsaria) I, too offer my deepest sympathy.

Being able to donate to the cause of continuing Dr. Sautov's work would be a wonderful tribute.

If and when something is put in place, please let us know.

Dear Christine,
I'm so sorry to hear of Dr. Sautov's passing.
I send my deepest sympathies to you and his family.

I agree with everyone's remarks, if there is a place we can donate or send condolences, I'm sure we would all love to know.

I'm also sorry as an online forum is such a poor format for this, and normally I would send a real card.

My prayers and thoughts go out to his family, as well as your own.
Warmest,
Laura

I wrote to Irina Zaitseva, the lady with whom I worked at TS museum two summers ago. She emailed me back this morning with a little more information. Apparently the fact that Dr Sautov died abroad, with no witnesses to his death, really complicates the issue of bringing him back to Russia for burial, so at this point they don't even know when they can have a funeral. The Finnish police has to complete their investigation before they can release the body. This makes it even more difficult for his family and friends... The staff at the museum is shocked and distraught about Ivan Petrovich's death, he was very much loved and respected by all of them.

The fact that he would have wished to see it restored to the Quarenghi original rather than reflect the days of the last reign was his personal opinion.

And one which I hope more people come to hold over time.  It really is one of the world's great jewels of neo-classical architecture, and I'm sorry to see it lose perhaps its foremost champion as that -- condicio sine qua non.

Thank you, Nick. It sounds like they actually have the burial scheduled for August 6th, which means they probably got a date from Finland as to when the body will be released and  shipped back to Russia. That's good news for the family.

A note to our members and others who may be reading this thread:

It may be that you were not acquainted with Ivan Petrovich Sautov. You may have questions about him or the Museums of Tsarskoe Selo. I would ask two things of you. One, please reserve this thread for members and guests to post remembrances and condolences. Many of our members have a sense of loss and grief so please treat this thread as an online guest book and as a memorial.

Second, should you have something to say or ask that would not be appropriate for an online memorial, kindly wait a few weeks and post them on a different thread.

I have received many emails in the past few days from members who are offended by the seeming lack of concern of others towards their grief. Please do not become one of them.

And to the family and friends of Ivan Petrovich, we extend our deepest sympathies for your tragic loss.

I am sorry to hear about Dr. I.P Sautov's death.May he rest in peace.

I would also like to apologize about my previous post in which I asked about who would be Dr.Sautov's successor.That was inappropriate.Again sorry about that.

His death seems unexpected.I know he will be missed by his family and everybody who knew him, my condolences to those you in this forum who knew him.

Thank you very much for posting this wonderful photograph of this exceptional man. For me, who did not know him except by his work, it is such a nice memorial.
