Wikipedia, viewed Apr. 24, 2019 (Jean-François Thomas de Thomon was a French neoclassical architect who worked in Eastern Europe in 1791-1813. Jean-François Thomas was born in a third estate family in Paris; attended classes of the French Academy in Rome. In 1798 Thomas de Thomon accepted invitation from his brother Alexander, then living in Moscow. Russian Empire at that time was closed to all Frenchmen in fear of revolutionary ideas. Thomas de Thomon sneaked into the country through Hamburg and Riga, assuming a persona of a Swiss citizen, native of Berne. Thomas de Thomon initially worked for the Golytsins in their country residences and later relocated to Saint Petersburg. His best known work, Old Stock Exchange on the spit of Vasilyevsky Island, was completed in 1805-1810. Thomon died in 1813 after an accidental fall from the scaffolding of the Bolshoi Theatre, then being restored after a fire)
