Catalogue Note

Passionate about horses from a very young age, Nikolai Sverchkov dedicated his life to drawing them. Unlike his immensely popular troïka hunting scenes or battle scenes, the present portrait testifies to the artist’s ability as an equestrian portraitist and offers an intimate view of his favorite subject.
