Lot Essay

See D. A. Rovinsky, Concise Dictionary of Russian Graphic Artists, St Petersburg, 1895, p. 494, nos. 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11.

Orlovsky's series of Russian types of the sort easily observable on the streets of St Petersburg were a great success of his and were much imitated and reproduced. See A. Pluchart, Album Russe ou Fantaisies Dessinées par Alexandre Orlowsky, St Petersburg, 1826.
