Photographer's Note

The former Mikhailovsky Palace, now the Russian Museum with its Corinthian facade was built for the Grand Duke Mikhail, brother of Alexander I, by Carlo Rossi (1819-25). This architect, who laid out Mikhail Square in its entirety, also arranged the interior details of the palace.
In 1898 Nicholas II transformed the Palace into the Russian Museum of Alexander III, bringing in some of the paintings and art objects earlier assembled by his father at the Anichkov Palace.
