Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Pokitonov (Pochitonoff) was a specialist in miniature landscapes and portraits, and traveled extensively outside Russia beginning in 1878. Here he depicts a sunlit scene on the Danube. Pokitonov was known as the "Russian Meissonier." His works were eagerly sought out by American collectors. This painting was purchased by the museum's founder, Henry Walters in 1886, in New York City. Henry ultimately owned three paintings by the artist.
