Peter Vereshchagin Paintings in GeoCodedArt
Painting by Peter Vereshchagin (1834-1886). Though not as prolific as his brother Vasily, this artist rendered vivid images from many locations, some with famous landmarks and other more pastoral settings because they must have moved him somehow. A very common elements is a river bending to the horizon. His views are generally unremarkable in the atmosphere, though he did some hazy views of mountains in Crimea.
