Along the Neva River in St. Petersburg, the classically styled Marble Palace stands prominently in view, as one of the nine structures and parks that compose the State Russian Museum. This spring and summer, visitors who ascended the multi-toned marble staircase inside the Palace were met with Iranian artist Reza Derakshani’s eponymous retrospective, which featured over 80 of his vibrantly textured and hued paintings.
