Unknown Portrait of Emperor Peter I. 1720 - 1725

Notes:
Portrait of Emperor Peter I (1672-1725) Probably influenced by seventeenth-century Dutch portraiture, this likeness on a circular canvas by an anonymous painter reveals a rather human emperor, as opposed to a commanding presence meant to arouse awe and devotion. (00159)
