Portrait of Alexander Pushkin on the Neva Embankment. Painted by Boris Kustodief at 1915. Pushkin Museum of Fine Art, Moscow, Russia.
I like it. It is not the so popular version of the poet, as we know it. Kustodief has done a fine job and we (those of us who have just pop accidentally/discovered him) need to explore further more on the painter.
