Ivanov, A. A.
Bridgroom Buying a Ring.
1826 - 1858
Bridegroom Buying a Ring for His Bride
Not unlike Eugene Delacroix, who was an ardent sketcher in watercolor, Ivanov's preoccupation with ambitious themes in the medium of oil did not diminish his enthusiasm for creating works on paper. This charming genre scene reveals his talent at watercolor. (00742)
