The 400th Anniversary of the Romanovs Exhibition - Engineers Castle
Topic: 400th Anniversary

This exhibition is dedicated to the significant event of the Russian history - the anniversary of the election of Mikhail Fyodorovich Romanov as tsar, who was a founder of the new dynasty.

The last time that the anniversary of this historic event was marked was celebrated as a State holiday in 1913. After the October Revolution the significant event, that ended the epoch of the so-called Time of Troubles, as a rule, had been distorted or forgotten.

In 2013 the anniversary of the House of Romanov would once again be celebrated as a significant event in Russian history. The exposition includes about 150 paintings, sculptures, graphic works, applied arts works and coins from the collection of the Russian Museum's collection in St. Petersburg that are connected with the theme of the foundation of the new dynasty.

Among these works are the monumental canvas The Election of Mikhail Romanov as Tsar (1799) that was created by G.Ugryumov for the St. Michael's Castle; graphic works devoted to this event; paintings and sculpture portraits of members of Emperor's family by L.Karavak, G.Odolsky, F.Shubin, S.Torelli, S.Shchukin, G.Dow, M.Antokolsky and other artists of the 18th - beginning of 20th centuries.

Also on display at the exhibition is a working on-line catalogue which allows visitors an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the Album of Drawings, created by the artists during the Sacred Coronation in 1896.

The exhibition runs until July 15th, 2013 at the Engineers Castle (St. Michael's Castle) in St. Petersburg.
