Eduard Petrovich Hau was native of Baltic city of Revel (now Tallinn), in 1807. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden (1830-1832). Russian citizen Eduard Hau became known for his strict watercolor images of the interiors of the Winter Palace and the Hermitage, which represented and represent great value for the history of Russian culture.
