Lot n° 36 - Nicolas SWERTSCHKOFF (1817-1898) Return from the Hunt Oil on canvas. Signed and dated 1887 lower right 48 x 73 cm Son of the great steward of the royal stables, Nicolas Swertschkoff observed and painted horses since his childhood.

The painting presented at the auction was painted in 1887 when Nicolas Swertschkoff was recognized in Russia and worked regularly for the imperial family (the regularly for the imperial family (he was already the author of the famous portrait of Nicholas I in a sleigh).

Each character is very detailed and representative of the art of this painter.
