Twilight of Romanovs. Photographic Odyssey Across Imperial Russia

Twilight of Romanovs. Photographic Odyssey Across Imperial Russia

The lives of the tsars and their subjects from 1855 to 1918, told through rare archival photographs The Russian Empire was among the most mysterious of the world's great powers, profoundly torn between a rural population living almost medieval lives and industrial and social change in the cities. The tsar's gigantic realm struggled with the advent of modernity and with its own internal contradictions between Asia and Europe, faith and science, different ethnic groups, and the divergent interests of the aristocracy, the middle classes, the urban workers, and the rural poor: a continent of contradictions from abject poverty to fairy-tale wealth captured by authors from Tolstoy to Chekhov, from Gogol to Gorky. Twilight of the Romanovs opens a door into the world of pre-revolutionary Russia using original photographs taken during the last decades of Romanov rule. They include remarkable color images created using an early three-color-plate technique that brings the remote past to life. Our companions on this journey include the Scottish photographer William Carrick, Americans George Kennan and Murray Howe, the German-Russian Carl Bulla, Sergey Produkin-Gorsky, and the writers Leonid Andreyev and Anton Chekhov, together with many anonymous others. These photographs are snapshots of a vanished world, yet they reveal a surprising continuity: despite the subsequent revolution, faces, buildings, and landscapes still resonate with those who see them a century and more later. 360 illustrations, 114 in color

In July 1838 work began in the Moscow Kremlin on the reconstruction of the Russian emperors` residence. The old palace, designed by Bartolomeo Rastrelli in the 18th century, was now too small and not in keeping with current tastes or ideas of beauty and comfort. Restored in haste after the fire of Moscow in 1812, the building was now very dilapidated. All this prompted Emperor Nicholas I to build a new palace that was "fitting and in keeping with the country`s first capital". Nicholas entrusted
