While the exact subject of the present lot is unknown, the red-tiled roofs and cobblestone streets suggest the scene is set in medieval Italy or France. Although Stelletsky was famed for his Russian-themed works, his emigration to France sparked a keen interest in the country’s early medieval heritage, leading him to sketch buildings such as Chartres Cathedral and Saint-Pierre in Dreux and the rich collections of the Louvre and Cluny Museum in Paris. Stelletsky’s home in Le Toit at La Napoule was also in close proximity to a number of medieval sites, including nearby Cannes.
