Art by Russian painter Vasily Vereshchagin (1842-1904) who traveled all over the world, saw things that few men of his generation did, and painted them without apology. Top to bottom: In Jerusalem, Royal Tombs; Arab on a Camel; Sunset in Himalayas; Mausoleum of Shah-i-Zinda in Samarkand; Taj Mahal, Evening; Fire of Zamoskvorechye; In Defeated Moscow; The three main gods in a Chingacheling Buddhist monastery in Sikkim; Present Trophies; and Defeated, Requiem, a scene from the Russo-Turkish war in which a priest waves incense over the dead on the battlefield.
Possibly one of the more underrated painters of modern history.
Not really IMHO! :D I believe Vereshchagin created many battle scenes and he traveled extensively too. Perhaps it’s because there were actually two known Vasily Vereshchagin. The battle painter is Vasily Vasilyevich while the other is Vasily Petrovich… I’m honestly not really familiar with the latter.
You may or may not know but I am working on a new cookbook. One that involves cooking with coffee. Well, I’ve been testing out this Quinoa & Coffee Chili recipe for a while now and one can only eat so much chili, ya know? So I had to do something else with it. Baking it in a skillet with cornbread seemed like the perfect idea. It was!
