This warm, sunlit landscape bears close comparison with Bogoliubov’s View of the Bay of Sinop (1870s, The Zaporozhe Art Museum): note the positioning of the cursive signature, the tone and palette, the towering cumulus clouds behind distant hills, as well as the scale of the figures, the red flags and the characteristically ‘spindly’ brushstroke which is used to depict an oar, or in the present work the shaft of a well and legs of the horses. The boy standing with his back to the viewer appears to be wearing a red fez.

The Svechin family was a noble one with a distinguished military history. Numerous generals and senior officers bearing the surname served in the Russian army from the 18th to the 20th century. One Valerian Petrovich Svechin is recorded as taking the position of Official of the Order of St Catherine from 25 January 1845 and lived until 1885. It is possible he is the figure to whom the inscription on the reverse refers, though his military status has not been ascertained.
