Since established in the second half of the XVIII century, the Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg, designed for students from the lower strata of the population - the children of soldiers, petty officials, the serfs. And only by the 1820s, studies at the Academy of Fine Arts is a prestigious and among academics appear offspring of the nobility. Only since 1893, the fairer sex has become available formal training at the Academy. Previously, they could be engaged as an auditor students. The painting "Interior of the women's section of the St. Petersburg School of Drawing for an auditor," says Ekaterina Hilkova and presents interesting document about learning Russian ladies fine art.
