The artist is Ivanov
Study for the painting “The Phenomenon of Christ The People” (“The Phenomenon of the Messiah”), 1833–1857, located in the GTG.
The sketches of Alexander Ivanov to the picture "The Phenomenon of the Messiah" – a special art world. Hundreds of studies, each of which is an independent, internally perfect, finished work, sometimes plot independent of the large picture, but certainly preserving the ideological and aesthetic contact with it. Type, individual groups or plastic motifs are repeated repeatedly, finding the search for emotional formulas.
