|The Peterhof Palace from below the Cascade, the sites most dramatic feature and most |
common view, May 9, 2012. I plan to do a painting from this photo some day.
|Peter the Great's working quarters|
|The study, no effeminate gold leaf here.|
|The vomiting fish |
(in gold leaf, of course)
|The gargling turtles, the |
Romanovs had a sense of humor.
|The Peterhof chapel where later|
decorating tastes can be felt.
|Peter the Great,|
B. Koffr, 1713-16
