The first part of a scientific catalogue of photographs from the Tsarkoye Selo collection.
It opens a series of scientific catalogs of the Museum’s collections and includes 561 black and white and colour images. The earliest ones date from the 1850s, the most recent ones (colour autochromes) are from 1917.
The catalogue is divided into five thematic chapters (Portraits, Events, Tsarskoye Selo, Albums, Palace Interior in 1917) and equipped with extensive reference material, such as a glossary, an index of photographers, photo studios, specialty shops and firms, and indices of persons, palaces, interiors, parks and city buildings in the photos. The book gives a detailed description of the images, most of which were neither exhibited nor published earlier.
This publication is designed for professionals, collectors, antique dealers, and anyone interested in the history of Tsarskoye Selo.
