Photo and description
At the corner of Leontievskaya and Magazeynaya streets in the city of Pushkin there is the house of state councilor M.L. Stetkevich, erected in 1909 by the St. Petersburg architect Gustav Gustavovich von Goli, among the owners of which was the Tsarskoye Selo bourgeois F.I. Novikov.
The exterior of the building is in the Northern Art Nouveau style, which originated in the early 20th century in the Scandinavian countries and became widespread in St. Petersburg and its suburbs. The house is characterized by a free layout and developed volumetric plastic. The building stands out for its mushroom-shaped faceted bay window-tower, directed at the intersection of streets and crowned with a ribbed dome with a spire, a meander belt that connects the lancet windows. The design of the massive portal of the central entrance with a semicircular arch on supports made of rectangular and round stone blocks of different diameters is distinguished by its expressiveness. The plinth is faced with chipped granite (bream). For window sashes, small checkered devitrification is characteristic. The decorative balcony and tower are finished with a material imitating a tiled (shingle) coating. The embossed metal roof is complex in shape.
Today the building houses the Tsarskoye Selo collection museum. The museum was founded as a public gallery in February 1991 by the artist Alexander Mikhailovich Nekrasov (acting director). Since 1992, the museum has been a public museum, since 1996 - a municipal museum, and since 1999 - a state museum of regional subordination.
