Lot Essay

During his youth, Surikov heard the legend of Yermak conquering Siberia. As his family were from Krasnoyarsk and traced their genealogy back to the Don Cossacks who joined Yermak, Surikov drew upon both folklore and family recollections for his work Siberia's conquest by Yermak (1895, State Russian Museum, St Petersburg). For information on Semen Belits, please see lot 37.
