The monument to Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky in Moscow is a monument of architecture that arouses interest not only among fans of the great writer, but also lovers of the art of frozen images. The monument was erected in 1997. Several people worked at once to create the monument: architects M. Possokhin and A.P. Kochekovsky, as well as sculptor and restorer A. Rukavishnikov The monument to Dostoevsky is located on Vozdvizhenka street, 3/5. To get to the monument, you need to get to the Alexander Garden (metro station).
Architects chose a very comfortable place for the monument - Pensive Dostoevsky is located at the entrance to the building of the Russian Library, which is a very logical decision. The monument was erected in the anniversary year for Moscow - on the eve of the 850th anniversary of the capital.
The monument to Dostoevsky is made in a realistic manner. The creators portrayed the writer in his natural state - a deep reflection on the meaning of life. A wise thought froze on his face, which will soon be captured in one of the brilliant works. Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky forgot about the bustle of everyday life, sitting on a bench in order to feel in harmony with himself and the world.
The sculpture of the writer is made of bronze. It is mounted on a pedestal of granite, on which the name of the Russian writer is carved. The design of the back of the monument is interesting: here you can see the embankment of the Neva, Queen of St. Petersburg.
It is interesting that in 2006 a resident of Dresden saw a monument created by Rukavishnikov, in which the features of “Moscow” Dostoevsky are easily discerned. Almost an exact copy of the monument now attracts residents and visitors of the city, among whom there are real connoisseurs of literary Dostoevsky.
