Hermitage - The Throne Room
The Throne Room of Peter the Great is right behind the Field Marshall’s Hall. Its ceiling has gilded decorations, and on its walls are two paintings of the battles of Lesnaya in 1708 and Poltava in 1709, the turning points of the Northern War against Sweden. At the far end above a throne of gilded silver and seasoned oak made by the English master Nicholas Clausen in 1731, hangs a formal portrait of Peter the Great and Glory painted by the Venetian artist Jacopo Amigoni in the 1730s.
It is worth noting that the Throne Room of Peter the Great has no actual historical relation to the tsar himself - it is a dedication thought up many years after his death.
