Maxim Vorobiev Paintings geocoded

View of the Kremlin (by the Stone Bridge)

Painting by Maxim Vorobiev (1787-1855) 

Very few of the Russian landscapes painters did work in a wider variety of settings and locales; It may be this time spent capturing many other scenes, atmospheres, and aesthetics adds extra depth to his depictions of the great landmarks of Moscow and Petersburg.  These he shows with more affection than other painters whose goal was to convey the appropriate awe in the face of majesty. Vorobiev shows them as places you really might want to visit.
