"Hall of twenty columns in the..." Hermitage Tip by AndreasK

Hermitage, Saint Petersburg: 279 reviews and 544 photos


<b>Hall of twenty columns</b> in the Hermitage was created after a design of the Munich-based architect Leo von Klenze in the mid-19th century and was originally intended for an exhibition of antique painted vases. Two rows of polished columns made of granite from Serdobol, Karelia, divide the Hall into three sections. The stone mosaic floor and the pictorial decoration of the walls and ceiling show patterns typical of Antiquity. Works of art of ancient Italy, mainly painted vases, are on display in this hall.
