Anna Petrovna Ostroumova-Lebedeva signed her drawing: “January 9, 1933”. The date can be seen in the lower right corner of the picture. If you look at the weather archive in Leningrad, then on January 9, 1933, the average temperature was -2.1C. It was snowing the day before. This means that this landscape was captured by the author in January 1933. But given the author’s vision, we can assume that this is a composite image of all the snowy months of Leningrad.

Enjoy your walks in the pre-winter gardens of the Russian Museum. You can find out about the opening hours of the gardens in the fall on the site “Gardens of the Russian Museum”.
