It may seem unbelievable that a boy who was born as an illegitimate child of a French governess becomes academician of the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, court artist of the Russian tsar and Honorary Member of the Florence Academy of Arts. But that is just what the story of Carl Templeton von Neff is like. Many paintings of the Russian tsar castles as well as paintings in churches of Moscow and London were painted by him. The grandiose two-storied main building of the Mug Manor in the Neo-Renaissance style was built according to the design of von Neff during the years 1866-72. A gift light grey marble staircase from Tsar Alexander II also today leads the guests to the hall which white marble fireplace and paintings created by the artist/lord of the manor himself located above the doors help to understand the story of an illegitimate child who received a nobility title.
