Comment:

This canvas was also exhibited in the ‘tente pittoresque’. As E.A. Nekrasova [1980] pointed out, both paintings had subtitles ‘Lady as Diana’ and ‘Gentleman as Endymion’. In the researcher’s opinion, ‘underlying the master’s paintings was his observation of nature and his experience as a portrait painter portrait painter’. Comments by Mikhail Anikin
