The artist is Serov
The evolution of the image of the first Russian emperor in artistic culture is obvious in small ones (only in size!) the masterpieces of Valentin Serov – “Peter I”, “Peter at the works”, “The Cup of the Great Eagle” (1910, timing) – the expressive, rapid image of the king, which has an extraordinary, delighting expressiveness. The artist himself said: “It is a shame that this person, in which there was no pose, sweetness, is always portrayed by some opera hero and handsome. And he was terrible: the lanky walked in huge steps at the same time. “. Elena Stolbova. Peter the Great in the visual arts // Both the navigator and the carpenter.
