Watercolors and Drawings

The Gatchina Museum-Preserves watercolor and drawing collection currently contains 501 pieces. The prewar holdings, however, were far more extensive and included over 1,500 items portraits, landscapes, images of military uniforms, genre, battle and hunting scenes.

Many of these works on paper were produced by renowned artists such as O. Verne, H.F. Viollier, M.N. Vorobyov, E.P. Haw, M. Zichi, I. Mayer, J. J. Mettenleiter, V.D. Polenov, L. Premazzi, V.S. Sadovnikov, A.I. Charlemagne, K.A. Ukhtomsky. The Gatchina palace museum currently holds just 300 artworks from its original collection, while 1,095 drawings and watercolors from the Palaces prewar collection remain in other museums. In the 1980s and 1990s, works by modern artists were added to the collection. At about the same time, the Palace acquired several portraits and landscapes from the 18th, 19th and the first half of the 20th centuries. These include works by K.E. Makovsky, A. Ya. Golovin, and N.E. Lancere.
