Peter the Great Equestrian Statue - The Bronze Horseman
Petersburg, where he was responsible for raising a colossal statue of Peter the Great. He was, at first, very well received by Catherine; but proud and independent, of low accommodative mood, the Jean-Jacques of sculpture as Diderot called him, he soon came into an open conflict with Betsky, the all-powerful minister of Fine Arts. Betsky wanted to impose on him the horse of Marcus Aurelius as a template on which to base his work; to which Falconet replied with a brochure with a severe criticism of this famous work.

Petrograd Former name: Falconet worked on this sculpture intensively and selflessly Falconet worked on this sculpture intensively and selflessly. How did they transport the 1, ton granite monolith to Saint Petersburg? Schenker's writing style is less than dazzling, and in a book filled with colorful characters, he manages to make none of them come alive.
There are definitely points of great interest here -- the debate between Falconet and Diderot over whether art should be created for posterity or for a contemporary audience, the enigmatic Carburi, the bureaucratic wranglings of the Russian imperial government, the theory behind the construction of the statue, and the different interpretations of the monument itself as a work of art.
For me these elements were enough to overcome the pedestrian writing style, but for someone less interested in the subject matter, this book would just be a snoozer.
