On the Colonnade of St. Isaac of Dalmatia 2011 paper, oil pastel 860×610


At the bottom in the left, one can see the Barclay de Tolly monument near the Kazan cathedral. Below, at the other side of the Fontantka River, down Posadskaya Street, there is the fire lookout tower on Sadovaya Street and the dome of St. Isaac of Dalmatia (of St. Isaac’s Cathedral собора). In front of it at the bottom— St. Isaac’s Square. Beyond, to the left — the Singer House (Dom Knigi bookshop nowadays) or (in times of V. Kaverin) the building of Mezhdunarodnaya Kniga (International bookshop) on Nevsky Prospect. To the right, the Admiralty spire can be seen. Further to the right — the knight in black armour berhymed by A. Blok stands on the Winter Palace roof. Beyond the spire and the knight, deep in the picture, there is the angel on the spire of the Peter and Paul Fortress. A small river of Saint Petersburg (Moyka or Fontanka) runs along the right border of the picture. The Stone Bridge, the Kalinkin (or Chernyshev) Bridge, and the Red Bridge pass over it. The house at Five Corners is to the left from the small river (or is it a channel?).
