Exposition "The Red Sitting Room" 20 February 2009
Exposition "The Red Sitting Room"In the mid-19th century the Red Sitting Room was a portrait room and a musical salon. There was an organ, and a grand piano alongside with twenty portraits. Later the Red Sitting Room transformed into the room of Irina Ivanovna Paskevich, Princess. The grand piano and the organ were moved out. The room was divided into cozy corners where one could do various things: reading, embroidering, gaming and just resting. The sofas and the soft chairs, the lampshades and mahogany furniture: everything there stated that the main criteria of its positioning was comfort. The walls would carry big parade portraits of the Russian Tsars and of the family members of the Vorontsov-Dashkovs as well as the watercolors and engravings. There were the clocks of various forms and mechanisms: some of them still exist and stay in the museum exposition. The owners of the palace liked the clocks very much: multi-voiced chimes animated the rooms.
