拍品資料及來源

One of the first commissions given to Quarenghi by Catherine II was for the construction of three small palaces in the English garden of Peterhof. Work seems to have begun in 1780 but the Empress' palace, the so-called English Palace, was not completed until 1794, and the two others, which were never completed, were destroyed on the orders of Emperor Paul I in 1797. The gardens themselves were the work of James Meders, begun soon after his arrival in 1779. Other drawings related to the project are known, none as complete or with the annotations of this one (see Sandro Angelini et al., Giacomo Quarenghi, Bergamo, 1984, pp. 130-134; p. 182, note 83; and cat. nos. 18, 723, 724).
