Russian Art

Bogolyubov, A. P. Michael's Castle in Petersburg, Detail. 1844 - 1896

Notes:
Detail from "Michael's Castle in Petersburg from Lebiazhy Canal" This Romantic view of the landmark St. Michael's Castle in St. Petersburg captures the dim light of dusk when the setting sun casts its warm glow over the structure. The figures in the boat upon the receding canal provide mood and scale for this mid-nineteenth-century Russian reverie. (00181)
