Summer Garden, Nurillo Khudaymuradov (Uzbekistan) – Exquisite Art
In 1704, according to the decree and the handwritten plan of the Russian Emperor Peter I, a garden named the Summer Graden was laid out in the place of the former Swedish mansion on the banks of the Neva in St. Petersburg.
It got this name because there was planted almost only one year of flowers initially, and trees were planted there later. Though later, the term gained a broader meaning and became understood as a garden for summer walks, unlike the closed winter gardens. The design and decoration of the Summer Garden had lasted for many years, and there was no Russian emperor who ignored the adornment of the city. The central ornament of the garden – its marble statues – were brought from various European cities.
Having lived 15 years in St. Petersburg, the work’s author reproduces his daily walks through the Summer Garden, its indescribable beauty in different seasons, with tender love. Passing his exquisite sense of colour and palette, Nurillo makes his memories come alive, allowing you to enjoy walks in the alleys that only Russian emperors could have afforded previously.
