Asceticism, ease of interior, the absence of “cute gizmos” inherent in any private house, suggests that a library of any state institution or educational institution is depicted. Before admission to the timing, the picture belonged to a well -known artistic critic, the historian of art n. N. Wrangel (1880–1915). He, like his father n. E. Wrangel, was a passionate expert and passionate collector. The apartment of the lungeles on the pool in St. Petersburg was “stuffed with beautiful things”.

Argutinsky-Dolgorukov (1874–1941), who collected paintings by Russian artists of the first half of the 19th century, Western European masters, architectural graphics of the XVIII-the first half of the 19th century with the views of St. Petersburg and its environs, as well as rare samples of porcelain.
