Catalogue Note

It is interesting to compare the design of the female-term supports on the present lot with drawings for the upper vestibule of Pavlosk Palace by Andrei Voronikhin (1759-1814), one of the premier Russian architects of the late 18th century and closely tied to Count Alexander Sergeievich Stroganoff, see Penelope Hunter-Stiebel, Stroganoff the Palace and collections of a Russian noble family, p. 178-179.
