A.Villebrecht
XVII century, Russia
Map of the Tobol province, the late XVIIth century
Engraving on copperplate, chisel, etching, colouring in water soluble paints. 50 x 60 cm
 

"The Atlas of the Russian Empire" (edited by Villebrecht) with artistic cartouches in the pictures corners, true products of engraving art, conveying their allegorical meaning, was assembled and published at the late reign of Catharine the Great. It is interesting in that it images the region, whence the huge wealth of modern Russia comes.
