Abstract

The majority of ancient statues in the Hermitage Museum can be traced to the Lyde Browne Collection purchased in England at the end of the eighteenth century by the Russian empress Catherine II. The catalogs of antiquities belonging to Lyde Browne, issued in 1768 and 1779, indicate that sculptures in this collection were usually obtained from private galleries in Rome. The authenticity of the catalog sources can be established on the basis of various documents and publications. Especially important in this regard are two series of drawings, one by Thomas Jenkins, and the other by Giovanni Battista Cipriani, which illustrate statues formerly owned by Lyde Browne.
