One of the most famous architects of the end of the 19th-beginning of the 20th century Fyodor Shekhtel worked in different architecture styles – neoclassicism, eclectics and even gothic style but his real masterpieces are created in a modernist style. One of the projects is a house, which was built in Taganrog by the order of a wealthy bread trader Evgeny Sharonov. The right part of the building is decorated with the panel picture "Sea battle", which was created based on the sketch of the famous Russian artist Mikhail Vrubel. Since 1981 in Shavronov’s house the Museum for Town Planning and Daily Life is located.
