Description

A watercolour view of the Russian stand at the Great Exhibition of 1851. Signed and dated.
The Russian display at the Great Exhibition was dominated by great malachite doors made in the Demidov factory at St Petersburg, which allegedly took thirty men an entire year to make. However these, as well as a number of other Russian objects, did not go on display until over a month after the official opening of the Exhibition, as ice in the Baltic Sea occasioned transport delays.
