Catalogue Note

Ust'-Koiva is a village by the banks of the River Chusovaya in the Urals and the site of important iron mines. In 1876 Vereshchagin received a commission from the Gornozavodskaya Railway Association to paint views along the Chusovaya, which as well as being an important trade route was also the planned location of the new Urals railway line connecting Perm with Ekaterinburg.
