Exhibition Art Heritage of the Klodt Family

Peter Klodt von Jurgensburg (1805-1867) was a famous animal sculptor, who became widely known in
      Russia and abroad. Peter Klodt became the founder of a major art dynasty, whose creative heritage is
      presented for the first time at a large-scale exhibition. The Russian Museum, Saint Petersburg, boasts
      the best collection of sculptural works by Peter Klodt. Along with unique author's wax sketches received
      from the Museum of the Imperial Academy of Arts, visitors will see models of famous equestrian groups
      for the Anichkov Bridge, monuments to Emperor Nicholas I and poet Ivan Krylov, as well as bronze tints
      of famous animal figurines.
      Another part of the exhibition consists of works by artists-representatives of the Klodt family, members
      of the Association of Traveling Art Exhibitions. These are genre paintings by Mikhail Petrovich Klodt
      (1835-1914), the son of the renowned sculptor, and works by his nephew, landscape painter Mikhail
      Konstantinovich Klodt (1833-1902). These masters contribution made an original page in the history of
      Russian art in the second half of the 19th century, vividly and comprehensively reflecting important
      trends in its development. The exhibition is complemented with the works by Peter Klodt's grandson-
      Nikolai Alexandrovich Klodt (1865-1918) - a painter and theater artist, and samples of engravings with
