abstract

Experiencing Crimean landscape and architecture through representations were enticing for the nineteenth century Russian artists, writers and travellers. Works by Lev Lagorio, Ivan Aivazovsky, Fedor Vasiliev, the Chrnetzovs brothers and many more are paradigmatic examples of the visualization and appropriation of the distant landscapers, involving the eye of the Russian beholder, the practice of travel as a displacement from home, and the role of painting and photography as a souvenir authenticating experience. Most of these representations from early sketches to photography, reflect a cultural identity that is different from that of the places they describe and the consolidated a sense of Russia through the mirror of its ‘others’.
