The Bridge I

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).

Next we have Ivan Shishkin (1832-1898).

And lastly, for now, we have Pyotr Konchalovsky (1876-1956).
