Anichkov Bridge
August 21, 2016 11:42


 Anichkov Bridge is the most significant Bridge of St. Petersburg, besides the Palace Bridge. First of all it is a "bridge of four horses" and moreover it is one of the best view points of Nevsky Prospekt. At this point the direction of the Fontanka smoothly curved, the panoramic embankments are extended in both directions, and a rare sky, air and freedom feeling occurs here in densely built center. It seems so far. Even those who are in a hurry will walk involuntarily slow on the Anichkov Bridge.

Here are always artists, photographers, tourists strolling citizens, as well as curious citizens seeking evidence of popular legend - if under the tail of one of the horses, the sculptor has depicted the face of Napoleon. Klodt composition is called "Horse Tamers" - four groups of figures in different poses. Most often, they look exactly like the one on four separate pairs of "horse-tamer." But in fact, Klodt created something like a sculpture comics or cartoon storyboard: a horse and a naked tamer at different stages of the movement.

The first group is one on the west bank of the Fontanka River, on the right side of the bridge, when facing the Admiralty Needle. In this pair wins man: he firmly but controls abutting horse. The second group is on the same side, on the left side of the bridge. The horse is already beating and shows the teeth, and tamer figure is tenses and "twisted".

Next frame is on the opposite side, on the eastern bank. The horse reared up and nearly broke; a tamer overturned on the ground and barely holds the reins. And the final scene: the young athlete still tames a horse, standing on one knee and pulled the headrope with both hands.
