Wishing you the Christmas of your dreams... and may your New Year be a joyful one.



About the picture, above. Artist: V. A. Tropinin (1776 - 1857). Woman at the Window, or A Treasurer's Wife as an illustration to the poem by Mikhail Lermontov -- Женщина в окне, или Казначейша по поэме Лермонтова Тамбовская Казначейша. Имя персонажа поэмы Авдотья Николавна Бобковская. Prototype of the personage is Countess Maria Razumovsky (1772 — 1865) lady in waiting, whose lover 'won' her from her husband in the game of cards.
