#Repost @missnovitckaja Ryabushinsky Mansion (Gorky’s House )1906 art-nouveau mansion was designed by Fyodor Shekhtel and gifted to celebrated author Maxim Gorky in 1931. The house is a visual fantasy with sculpted doorways, ceiling murals, stained glass, a carved stone staircase and exterior tilework. Besides the fantastic decor it contains many of Gorky’s personal items, including his extensive library.The original interiors of Ryabushinsky’s mansion are such that the central staircase is reminiscent of a wave delivering a lamp that looks like a medusa up to the first floor. #artnouveau #architecture #museum #moscow #interior #russia #history #artdeco
