Catherine the Great. To the 290th Birthday

The halls of the Bolshoy Palace host art works from other Russian collections. So, in the hall of the coronation celebrations of 1762 in Moscow, you can see a one-of-a-kind work—Allegory for the Reign of Catherine the Great by an unknown Russian artist (History Museum). The theme of military victories is represented by the painting of Battle of Cesme by Dutch artist Theodor Rode (Tretyakov Gallery). The State Hermitage Museum provided a marble bust of Catherine the Great (1769) by Marie-Anne Collot. The true gem of the exhibition is the children's portrait of Alexei Bobrinsky (1770), illegitimate son of Catherine the Great and Grigory Orlov, provided by the Rybinsk History, Architecture and Art Museum-Reserve.
