About this artwork

Jean-Baptiste Le Prince traveled throughout Russia from 1757 to 1762, returning to Paris with exotic images of life in the country. This masterful drawing of an archetypal Russian figure bears the stamp at lower left of the Galerie Cailleux in Paris, where the sheet was exhibited in 1978.
