oil on canvas
The subject of the present oil painting is taken from one of
Martynov's most celebrated series of landscapes, 'St
Petersburgand its Environs', which consists of fifty
watercolours, several now owned by the Tretyakov Gallery. He
produced them at a period when there was a vogue in both art and
literature for celebrating man's ability to improve nature, as
exemplified in neo-classical panoramas. In 1815 the writer
Batiushkov had published one of his most famous works, 'A short
walk through the Academy of Arts', which laments the preference
of Russian artists for 'dilapidated Paris and smoky London'
to their native cities: 'Often I have watched with regret as
they labour over the hot sky of Naples in the midst of a stinging
frost, tormenting their imagination - and often our eyes'. Although Martynov had followed this well-trodden route to Italy
where he studied for six years, he returned to Russia in 1794; the
landscapes he produced between 1804 and 1810 of southern Russia,
Mongolia and the Baltic regions remain some of his best. He was
also one of the first Russian artists to master the technique of
lithography, a media only recently developed in Bavaria.
The Neo-Palladian Cameron Gallery depicted in the background of
this picture was designed by the Scottish architect, Charles
Cameron, towards the end of Catherine II's reign. The Catherine
Palace was first built in 1717 by a German architect engaged by
Catherine I, though subsequent empresses demolished and expanded
the building to such a degree that in her memoirs Catherine II
called it 'the work of Penelope: what was done today, was destroyed
