State Russian Museum presents the exhibition "Crimean species of Jacques Kristof Miville". A small exposition is devoted to the work of a talented artist of the romantic era, a talented landscape painter, portrait painter, author of historical paintings, one of the prominent masters of the so-called “Rossica”.
Jacques Christophe Miville (1786–1836) was born in Switzerland, but his fate is closely linked with Russia. In 1809, he arrived in Moscow, and from 1810, in the intervals between traveling around the country, Mivill lived and worked in St. Petersburg, where he served as an artist and topographer with Count Grigory Orlov.
The Russian Museum holds nine Crimean species by Jacques Christophe Miville. The works are an interesting topographic and artistic document.
