The Bridge II

Continuing our theme of bridges, I must point out that there were several in that series of posts on Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812. Please do take a look when time permits and the gestalt is here. Heh.

Fyodor Vasilyev (1850-1873), one of the Wanderers, is first up:

At the Sink, by Fyodor Vasilyev.

Here’s Mikhail Vrubel (1856-1910) in Venice.

The Ukrainian artist Alexander Bogomazov’s (1880-1930) Impressionistic view of a bridge.

Some symbolism from the Lithuanian Mikalojus Čiurlionis (1875-1911):

Anna Ostroumova-Lebedeva (1871-1955) is inspired by the canals and bridges of Amsterdam:

Symbolism once again with Mstislav Dobuzhinsky (1875-1957):

And to round this post off,  Alexandra Ekster (1882-1949):
