|| This interior in the apartments of Empress Maria Alexandrovna,
the wife of Alexander II, was created by the architect Alexander Briullov
in 1838-41. The ceiling is decorated with gilded mouldings. In the
1840s the room was refurbished by Andrei Stakenschneider. The décor
is completed by a marble fireplace with jasper columns that is embellished
by a bas-relief and a mosaic picture (by Etienne Moderni), gilded
doors and a magnificent parquet floor.
