*Rococo Revisited
Rossi, Carlo (1775-1849)
Window wall of the White Hall, Mikhailovsky Palace, St Petersburg (constructed in 1819-1825, a Neoclassical palace of Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich of Russia, designed by Carlo Rossi, currently housing the State Russian Museum since 1895)
c.1828
Drawing/ Watercolour
Here the design clearly demonstrates the supremacy of the neoclassical style in the 19th century; the lines are clear and the decoration is restrained; the only elements that still remind us of rococo are the painted decorations over the windows and the few gilded elements. All speaks about the solemn return to a respectful, heroic, distant past of a noble antiquity.
