The 100th anniversary exhibition
The work of Aleksei Nikolaevich Dushkin is an important phenomenon in the history of the Russian architecture of XX century. At the first sight, it had combined contradictory trends. The architect was an innovator and a seeker who knew excellently and used all the possibilities of the modern techniques. He asserted that architecture had to strive for a permanent modernisation, development, and creation of new forms. Still he was searching for a modern architectural language simultaneously with the interpretation of the architectural heritage.

The exhibition in the Blue Bedroom of the Winter Palace (Room 307) draws the visitor's attention to the stages of the development of medieval applied art. One of the high points of this development was the main display item of the show, the so-called Freiburg Cross. The cross was created at the end of the 18th century in Strasbourg for the Monastery of St Trudpert near Freiburg. French and German cultural traditions came together in this city on the Rhine.
The Hermitage's collection of medieval monuments of applied art is among the best in the world. It had its origins in the collection of A.P. Bazilevsky (1829 - 1899). In 1884, his collection was sold to Emperor Alexander III for the Hermitage. Thirteen of the items on display in this exhibition come from the Bazilevsky collection, among them the famous Freiburg Cross, a silver wine vessel (potir) of the 13th century, a Limoges reliquary casket, and box covered in painted leather, which is a real decoration for the exhibition. The other major private collection in which medieval objects occupied an important place was the collection of the Shuvalov family. Many of the works on display in the exhibition come from the collection of the Museum of the School of Technical Drawing founded by Baron Stieglitz (1814-1884).
From the N.I.Blagodatov's collection. Dedicated to the 30th Anniversary of the Exhibition Held at the Gaza Cultural Centre.
The Gaza-Nevsky culture is believed to have been started on the 22nd of 1974. On that day the exhibition at the Gaza Cultural Centre brought together all groups, apartment 'academies' and circles that had operated at Soviet communal flats and barracks. Fifty-two artists presented over 200 of their pieces. The exhibition was on a very short period of time - a mere four days, but it did cause a stir. Crowds of those who wished to see the forbidden, and thus very alluring, art flooded Obukhovskaya Oborona Prospect (Obukhovo Defence). About 15 thousand people came to visit the exhibition. The exhibition had neither a well-thought-out composition nor a clear-cut aesthetic programme. This was outside its goal. Important was participation, association with the 'second' culture, the possibility of "self-expression at the point of the bayonet". Artists marched in unison bonded by their hate of the Big Brother, they longed for the air of freedom and a chance to freely express themselves. The happening at the Gaza Cultural Center and the subsequent exhibition at the Nevsky Cultural Centre represented the whole array of the multifaceted and variegated 'second' Leningrad culture, which was labeled "the Gaza-Nevsky".

All the other pictures are devoted to the sun as a condition.
