Catalogue Note

Mikhail Sergeevich Bashilov (1821-1870) was one of the most prominent Russian literary illustrators of the 19th century and first distinguished himself with a group of twenty illustrations for A.P. Golitsynskii's sketches.  These introduced the reader to the Russian people through observation of the details of their daily lives: '[The common man's] entire personal and public life is expressed on the street: here he works, drinks, passes time, quarrels, trades, cheats.'
