Ural Artist Creates Six-foot Portrait of Nicholas II and Son
Topic: Nicholas II

Ural artist Misha Brusilovsky has created a six-foot painting, which depicts Emperor Nicholas II and his son Tsesarevich Alexei. During an interview with E1.RU, the artist said that he began the work three or four years ago.

He went on to say that after the initial first drawings, he then tried to comprehend and understand Nicholas II. “Politically, I am a dedicated monarchist. I adore and love the tsars, and believe that the tsars are the messengers of God. They lived and ruled Russia for more than 300 years” - explained Brusilovsky.

The portrait measures 2 meters (width) x 1.80 meters (height). The artist said he has no plans to sell his painting at the present time, noting that “a painting such as this is rarely completed immediately. I am presently taking a rest, but will return to it again and again” - said Misha.

It is interesting to note that Brusilovsky is one of the most expensive contemporary Russian artists in the world. In 2006, Brusilovsky’s painting "Football" sold for £108,000 pounds.
