Description

A view of a church, the 5 of September 1839. Figures are lithographed by Raffet.
Plate taken from the first illustrated account of Russian architecture. This publication was the project of Count Anatol Demidov and the French draughtsman André Durand, the record of their 1839 tour of Russia was published in Paris in 1845 as Album du voyage pittoresque et archaéologique en Russie.
Durand’s lithographs betray a foreigner’s sensitivity to the seeming alien-ness of Russian architecture displaying some curiously distorted features, and are on the whole fairly accurate representations.
Printed by August Bry 134, rue du Bac, à Paris..
