Книга посвящена исследованию вклада русской художественной культуры в становление и развитие одного из больших мировых стилей – классицизма второй половины XVIII – начала XIX века на материале зодчества и ваяния. Подчеркивается особая роль московской школы в этом процессе. Отталкиваясь от проблематики наследия и наследования, автор в части, посвященной зодчеству, проводит читателя по анфиладам важнейших для судьбы стиля в России вопросов: инерции барокко, типологии и иконографии классицистического здания, специфики московских предпочтений, альянса архитектуры и природы, а также закономерностей экспозиционного ансамбля. Ваяние эпохи классицизма читателю представлено в свете взаимодействия «подражательных» и иносказательных задач. Здесь он погружается в мир российской истории как источника тем в академическом искусстве, знакомится с особенностями использования тематического арсенала античных мифов в череде воплощений российской Минервы, в том числе и в барельефах Московского сената. Замыкает книгу классически строгий анализ мемориальных шедевров Москвы и Петербурга: памятника Минину и Пожарскому и Александровской колонны. Внимание уделяется и усадьбе как особому месту для реализации мемориальных замыслов. Опираясь на свой и коллективный исследовательский опыт, используя редкие, в том числе и архивные данные, автор показывает неуклонный рост значения Москвы в художественной жизни Российской империи рассматриваемой эпохи. Современный научный подход и увлекательный показ специфики старинного искусства делают книгу интересной не только для специалистов, студентов гуманитарного профиля, но и всех, кого волнует отечественная, в том числе и московская классика.
