Fyodor Rokotov. Collection of the Historical Museum
The exhibition "Fyodor Rokotov. Collection of the Historical Museum" to acquaint visitors the picturesque heritage of the largest Russian portrait painter of the XVIII century.
Among the works presented at the exhibition, the Central place is occupied by a large ceremonial portrait of Catherine II, and most of the works presented are chamber portraits of representatives of the Moscow nobility. The images of the poet A. p. Sumarokov, count D. M. Matyushkin, and the Moscow beauty A. K. Vasilchikova are conveyed with amazing subtlety and psychologism in the artist's characteristic pictorial manner. Many of these works were not previously exhibited, and some were only attributed as Rokotov's works after careful study, and will also become part of the exhibition for the first time.
