A brief annotation Etienne Maurice Falcone (1716-1791) was a French sculptor who embodied in his works the emotional lyric theme of European classicism of the 18th century. Falcone’s masterpiece – the statue "Winter" was very much adored by his friend Denis Diderot, a famous French writer and philosopher. All of his life Falcone dreamt of creating a monumental work and his dream came true in Russia. On the advice of Diderot, the Russian emperor Catherine II commissioned the sculptor to create an equestrian statue of Peter the Great. The statue shows Peter taming a horse. The unity of motion and static is superbly reproduced in the monument. A regally proud poise of the emperor, commanding gesture of his hand, and a turn of his head in a laurel wreath all lend special importance to the statue. The expressive silhouette of the monument, perched on a pedestal of solid stone of a wave shape, rises against the backdrop of St. Petersburg. Falcone left Russia in 1778 before the monument was installed.
Designer The artists: E.V. Kramskaya (obverse), S.V. Sutyagin (reverse). The sculptors: A.A. Dolgopolova (obverse), F.S. Andronov (reverse).
