St. Petersburg: A Portrait of a Great City

Saturday, November 1, 2003 to Saturday, January 17, 2004

Books, manuscripts, prints, and photographs document the role of St. Petersburg as a cultural, artistic, and literary center from its founding through the Second World War. The exhibition looks at St. Petersburg through the eyes of non-Russian travelers, while including such Russian artifacts as the library's renowned Romanov albums and the recently acquired manuscript of Anna Akhmatova's Poema bez geroia (Poem without a hero).
