The Italian architect Giacomo Quarenghi (1744 – 1817) was very popular in Russia where he moved in 1779. Many splendid buildings he erected in St. Petersburg became glaring examples of an austere and refined Classicism style. Quarenghi’s unique talent gained him several decades of continuous commissions from the Russian nobility. His works in Tsarskoye Selo represent a high point of Russian Classicism.
