Mikhail Nesterov - Study for the “The Vision to the youth Bartholomew”, 1889. The painting was the first from the cycle devoted to St Sergius of Radonezh. Once young Bartholomew met an angel disguised as a stranger. The boy said he could not study reading and learning and he wanted to understand Holy Scriptures. He asked the the stranger-monk to pray for him. The stranger blessed him with the words that he would outdo equals of his age. And that was true. Nesterov painted the youth from a girl.

Beat the Whites with the red wedge! El Lissitzky, 1920. Before Stalin artists had freedom to use different artistic styles for pro-Communist propaganda. This abstract poster promotes Communists (Red) in their war against Whites only through shapes and colors

Two portraits of Russian writer Ivan Turgenev by Ilya Repin, 1873, 1879. Both were disliked by the sitter and highly criticized by society and art critics. Repin himself considered the first as failure for its “dullness”. Now the first is hanged in Tretyakov gallery and maybe the most well-known depiction of the writer. By the way, if you haven’t yet read such Turgenev’s novels as “Virgin Soil” (Nov), “Rudin”, “On the Eve” (Nakanune) and (of course) “Fathers and Sons”, that’s a good way to start to learn about Russian culture more. Also, Turgenev was a brilliant stylist, so if you want to learn Russian, this is an example of a clear language

Unknown artist - Russian embassy to the English court, 1662. From left to right: prince Prozorovsky, nobleman Zhelyabuzhsky, dyak Davydov. The portrait was made in England probably by some Italian master. It’s a valuable source of Russian elites appearance and clothes in Pre-Petrine epoch. The embassy had a mission to congratulate King Charles II after restoration and make friendly relations with England. After the English Revolution and beheading of Charles I, relationship between Russia and England worsened, and English merchants lost their trade privileges in Russia. Russian tsar Alexei Mikhailovich did not recognize Oliver Cromwell and sent money to the exiled Charles. Nevertheless, former privileges were not restored after Charles ascended to the throne

Soviet poster, 1920. The text below is: “Citizens! Have yourselves vaccinated against cholera. Death is powerless against vaccination only!" And the text in the upper corner warns : "One glueing or tearing this poster do counter-revolutionary work.” In 1918 cholera and typhus epidemics had an outbreak. In 1920 the government Ministry of Health produced several posters like these encouraging citizens to bathe often, use soap and to vaccinate themselves. Because most peasants were illiterate the picture should be understandable for them also
