St. Petersburg in the 1850s in Daziaro’s lithographs
Joseph Daziaro (1806-1865) came to the Russian Empire from Italy in the early 1820s. He started publishing business, his firm was Russia’s first private publishing house of printed art graphics.
Let’s look at his lithographs united under the title “Memories of St. Petersburg.” Most of them were made on the basis of pictures drawn by Charlemagne brothers: Josif Charlemagne (1824-1870) and Adolf Charlemagne (1826-1901). Source: aldusku.
