Looking around for a theme, I saw some sketches of Whistler of bridges over the Thames, and it occurred to me that there must be a similar cornucopia of cityscapes by artists of the erstwhile Russian empire. One needn’t seek long. Who better to start with than the wonderful Konstantin Korovin?
Here is a work by the Kalugan artist Leonid Mezhekov (1890-1965).
Here is a work by the St Petersburg artist Azat Galimov (1958-).
Here is Alexander Deineka (1899-1969).
Next we have Ivan Shishkin (1832-1898).
And lastly, for now, we have Pyotr Konchalovsky (1876-1956).
