Exhibition "Voronezh Palace. History and Architecture" (0+)


On October 13, at 16:00, the Voronezh Regional Art Museum named after I.N. Kramskoy will open the exhibition «Voronezh Palace. History and architecture». On the opening day, from 16:00 to 17:00, admission to the exhibition is free.

This exhibition will be the final event of the mobile poster project, which the viewer could see throughout the year in places of tourist attraction.

The elegant “Voronezh Palace” has been decorating the city for almost 250 years. Epochs and people changed, the building passed from private hands to the military department, became a hospital and a museum, went through repairs and devastation, but invariably remained one of the main attractions of Voronezh.

The house-palace was erected in 1777-1779 as the personal residence of Lieutenant General Ivan Alekseevich Potapov by architect Nikolai Nikitovich Ievsky. So in Voronezh, which in those years was recovering after the worst fire of August 1773, a building appeared that so strongly resembles the palaces of St. Petersburg.

For more than two centuries, the palace has changed externally and internally – the office premises were rebuilt, the plans of the interior rooms were changed, but one thing remained unchanged – the building certainly attracted the enthusiastic glances of citizens and guests of the city.

Old archival photographs and watercolor drawings, reproductions of which will be presented at the exhibition, depict the architectural appearance of the only palace-type building in the city. The chronologically arranged images created by artists, architects and photographers will take you through the centuries and tell you about the monument located in the heart of historical Voronezh.

Exhibition “Voronezh Palace. History and Architecture” for the first time presents the building as an independent subject of research. The exhibition will include more than 60 reproductions and photographs from the collections of the Voronezh Regional Art Museum named after I.N. Kramskoy, the Voronezh Regional Museum of Local Lore, the State Inspectorate of Historical and Cultural Heritage of the Voronezh Region, the State Museum of the History of St. Petersburg, the A.V. Shchusev State Research Museum of Architecture.

The exhibition will be located in a small exhibition hall (3rd floor of the main building) and will last until November 12.

Entrance ticket – 150 rubles.
Discounted ticket (schoolchildren, pensioners, students) – 100 rubles.
