Exhibition dedicated to the Great Countess Maria Pavlovna
10.07.2002 15:32

Exhibition dedicated to the Great Countess Maria Pavlovna An exhibition dedicated to the Great Countess Maria Pavlovna is to be launched in St. Petersburg October, 4th at the Palace of Culture of the Russian Academy of Sciences – the ex-residence of the Great Count Vladimir Alexandrovich, son of the Russian Emperor Alexander II and his spouse Maria Pavlovna. The Countess was one of the most influential women of her epoch, the core of the family, as she was called by Nickolay II, the last emperor of Russia. She was a woman of charity, and this is the main topic of the exhibition. She patronized the major part of the Russian schools and lyceums, asylums and hospitals. This is going to be the first time that a portrait of the countess will be exhibited to the public. The painting belongs to an unknown author of the XIXth century and was taken from the state collection of the "Gatchina” museum during the WWII. The painting was brought back to Russia in June, 2002. The exhibits for the exhibition are kindly donated by the State Hermitage Museum, the Russain State Museum of History, the State Museum of Shvern (Germany) and private collections.
