«Archway with Angels»

Fragment of magnificent interior decorations of Dormition Cathedral (Uspensky Sobor, Assumption cathedral) in Goritsky monastery with the arch of western gate and angels on a wall above it. The interior of the church built in the middle of the 18th century during the reign of Empress Elizabeth Petrovna (daughter of Peter the Great) displays a lavish decorative style in the late Baroque manner of Bartolomeo Rastrelli, author of the Winter Palace and other masterpieces in St. Petersburg. Another source is the work of Dmitry Ukhtomsky, a Baroque master active in the Moscow area. Unfortunately, these masterpieces are not in good condition and extensive restoration needed.
