Preparations for Christmas

Today’s Russian history picture is a painting depicting preparation of Christmas decorations from 1896 by Russian painter Sergey Vasilievich Dosekin (1869-1916).

It has been, again, chosen by one of our subscribers to be one of her favorite images of Russian history. The painting is on display at the Regional Art Museum in Simbirsk.
