About Portrait of the A.V. Vysheslavtsev

The artwork titled “Portrait of the A.V. Vysheslavtsev” is a work by the artist Alexei Korzukhin, created in the year 1880. This piece is an exemplar of the Realism art movement, falling under the genre of portraiture. The artwork reflects a detailed and unembellished representation, characteristic of Realist art, aiming to portray subjects in a truthful manner.

Delving into the detailed depiction, the portrait showcases a man in contemplative repose. His gaze directs slightly off to the side, away from the viewer, imbuing the artwork with a sense of introspection. The warm, focused lighting highlights the subject’s facial features, accentuating his thoughtful expression, and meticulous beard. His attire consists of a dark blue jacket and a white shirt with a formal black tie, suggesting a dignified social standing. The backdrop is devoid of detail, casting the subject in an austere environment that further focuses attention on his visage and demeanor. The artist’s skill is evident in the realistic rendering of the texture of the subject’s hair and the subtle interplay of light and shadow on his face and clothing, contributing to the lifelike presence within the artwork.
