War and Peace: A German Tsarina in Pavlovsk Palace
MUNICH  •  Haus der Kunst  •  Ongoing
The Tsarist palace of Pavlovsk with its vast park ensemble, about thirty kilometers south of St. Petersburg is inseparably associated with the name Maria Fjodorovna, née Sophie Dorothée von Württemberg. This German princess, subsequently Grand Duchess, Tsarina and widow of the Tsar, devoted forty years of her life to constructing and designing the palace and the park grounds.

The exhibition demonstrates the historical aspects that led to the founding of Pavlovsk, and also paints a vivid picture of the ideas and living ideals realized in the palace and its park. More than 500 exhibits from all branches of art and craft provide a convincing impression of the high artistic quality of the entire ensemble and its furnishings and appointments.
