First of all, it is not just the image of young heir to the Russian throne, but also a vivid portrait of the era: painting dates from the year of 1763, the time of the reign of Catherine II, who set the course to the succession of Peter the Great’s policy. A line from the "Ode on the birthday of His Imperial Highness Grand Duke Paul Petrovich" by M. V. Lomonosov serves as a title of the exhibition.
