Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Leftovers from the time when having an artist do a watercolor of every room in your home was the ultimate status symbol. This set being of the mansion of Baron A. Stieglitz in Saint Petersburg. 1870. Luigi Premazzi, watercolorist to the tsar (1814-1891).
Must have been taking a break from painting all those rooms in the Winter Palace. Sets of those watercolors coming, and lots of them. Just found more, mostly from Romanov palaces but some being of the drawing rooms of their friends.
On a voyage to see how much mileage I can get from the creative ability and eye for images that my family thought was useless. On line art curator, fiction writer and now blogger. Historian's daughter. Follow me . . .even I have no idea where I'm going next.
