In a picture I wanted to represent the glorious but tragic history of Russia, with the most representative figures surrounded by many bloody events. I want to apologize if I forgot someone!

Сама работа красивая--цвета, композиция, световые пятна. Задумка весьма интересная. Но штампованность восприятия истории России тоже присутствует: кровь на снегу призвана подчеркнуть некую особенную кровавость и ужасность России по сравнению с другими странами, тем не менее во все времена кровищи везде много проливалось, что на Востоке, что на Западе. И более чем удивляют некоторые представленные личности на фотографии: вместе с действительно гениями и великими людьми представлены почему-то и откровенные ничтожества (Горбачев например), проклинаемые своим народом, и посредственности, которых тоже как-то располагать рядом с великими не стоило бы (Солженицын, Брежнев). На их месте более уместнее бы смотрелись Александр Невский, Дмитрий Донской, Ломоносов, Лермонтов, Гоголь и т.д.--действительно достойные и великие люди.

Как Русская, мне очень понравилось сколько работы вы вложили в это произведение и как исторически правильно это получилось. Многие работы такого типа не полностью совпадают с Русской историей - некоторие детали не додуманы и сделаны не правильно. Спасибо вам большое за такую замечательную картину! :)
А вы случайно не учите Русский? Просто интересно :D
