Titian hall

Is a part of the enfilade of the Ceremonial halls on the second floor in the main building. Is located between the Conference hall and Katherine hall. Like Raphael hall, it preserved the decoration made in 1830s according to the design of К. А. Ton. One of two mezzanine halls which held the casts of the antique sculpture and where the students of the Academy had their painting classes was called Raphael hall in the 19th century. In the middle of the 19th century on the wall opposite of the windows there were fastened huge framed masterpieces of Russian and foreign painters reproduced from original paintings of Italian Renaissance masters (major part of these paintings was handed over to the Academy by order of Nikolai I). In 1920s the canvases were removed from the frames and built in the walls.

Conference hall

It is the central hall of the ceremonial enfilade which comprises Raphael, Titian and Katherine halls. In different times of the Academy of Arts’ existence different Ceremonial Halls were used as a Conference hall one by one.
Nowadays different ceremonies take place in the Conference hall – sittings, conferences, exhibition opening ceremonies, concerts. The walls are decorated with the portraits of outstanding teachers of the Academy of 18th-19th centuries. An item which is left from the interior decoration of the 19th century is the chest which was used for keeping the original Charter of 1764 (which is now kept in the archives of the Scientific-Research Museum of the Russian Academy of Arts).

Raphael hall

Is a part of the enfilade of the Ceremonial halls of the second floor of the main building. Is located between Pimenovsky and Conference halls. According to the project of K.A.Ton which studied in the Academy this hall was one of two mezzanine halls in which there were stored casts of antique sculptures during the years of A.N. Olenin’s presidency.
In the 19th century it was called Titian hall. Huge replicas made by Russian and foreign painters from the original masterpieces of Italian Renaissance masters hung opposite the windows in luxurious carved gold-plated frames in the middle of the 19th century, major part of them was gifted to the Academy by Nikolai I. In 1920s picturesque canvases were removed from the frames and built in the walls.

Katherine hall

Relatively small, covered by a cupola Katherine hall closes the ceremonial enfilade from the west. The hall appeared as a result of restructuring of several rooms located on two floors according to the design of К.А. Ton in 1830s. In 1830s a plaster statue of Katherine II of S.I. Galberg was mounted in this hall which gave the name to the room. In 1866 due to the 100-year anniversary of adopting the first Charter it was decided to put a marble replica of this Galberg’s sculpture made by V.P. Brodsky. This hall was the place of sittings of the Board of Professors of the Emperor Academy of Arts.
