Kiprensky, O. A. Portrait of Adam Carlovich Schwalbe, the Artist's Father. 1804

Notes:
Portrait of Adam Carlovich Schwalbe, the Artist's Father This canvas by the twenty-two-year-old painter, Orest Kiprensky, suggests the artist's budding talent for portraiture. Despite its debt to eighteenth-century Neoclassicism, it is already endowed with a spirit of intensity which prefigures Romanticism. (00241)
