Portrait of Peter the Great - 司古 - 司古的博客

This full-length portrait was painted by Gottfried Kneller during Peter the Great's "Grand Embassy" to Europe between the spring of 1697 and the summer of 1698. At that time, the German-born Kneller was a sought-after portraitist at the English court. He excelled in rendering the delicacy of flesh tints, the richness of fabrics, and the gleam of metal armor. He executed the portraits of the English kings Charles II and James II, and was appointed principal painter to the king (together with John Riley) in 1688.
The 26 year-old Peter I is depicted in the style of a European monarch, with the idealized beauty of youth. Copies of the engraved portrait circulated throughout Russia, serving as models for a series of head and shoulder portraits that were engraved and painted on enamel.
Gottfried Kneller (Lübeck, 1646–London, 1723)
London, 1698
Oil on canvas
H. 2.41 m; W. 1.45 m
