Vereshchagin, V. V. Interior of SS Peter and Paul Church. 1894

Notes:
Interior of the wooden SS Peter and Paul Church in Pichug Though Vereshchagin was known for his dramatic renditions of war and historical subjects, this scene in the old Peter and Paul Church in Pichug reveals the artist's interest in quiet interior scenes, particularly those of seventeenth-century Dutch painters such as Vermeer.
