Just on the right side of the Catherine Palace front yard is situated this bust of Bartolomeo Francesco Rastrelli, the French - born inventor, sculptor and architector. When I say inventor, I mean inventor of an opulent Russian Baroque architecture, which examples can be seen throughout St. Petersburg and its surroundings as for instance the Catherine Palace, then Peterhof and in Moscow naturally.
This great artist in his field of occupation combined the elements of Rococo with traditional elements of Russian architecture.
And such fine blending of art elements we can deliberately perceive,as multicoloured and decorative ornamentation, on all facades. He erected in his life a great number of palaces for Russia's rulers and members of the Imperial court. Mostly worked for the empresses Anna I and Elizabeth I.
And fully deservedly earned so much recognitions for his lifelong work.
