The portrait of Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, created by the artist Vasily Tropinin, is perhaps the most popular image of the great poet at the moment. And according to Alexander Sergeyevich himself, this portrait is quite realistic.

Before us is the figure of the poet, he sits with his head slightly turned, his gaze forms a diagonal relative to us from the depth of the left side of the portrait to the outside of the canvas to the right. The poet is shaved smoothly, with the exception of soft whiskers that remind us of light clouds, with the only difference being that they are black, like the curly hair on the head of a classic. The collar of the white shirt is starched with a stake and tied with a black scarf.

On top of his underwear, the poet is dressed in a robe that reminds us of something between a frock coat and a brown dressing gown with black lapels. In the lower left corner of the picture is outlined red-pink, possibly made of granite, the table on which rests the hand of the great classic of the golden word. The fingers are clenched in a relaxed fist. On the forefinger and thumb, we see gold rings adorning the hand of the unsurpassed master of the pen.

If you look a little more closely, you can find under the ulnar part of Pushkin’s hand, a manuscript hidden from us, whose white corners only slightly show themselves to the observant connoisseur of art.

The portrait is very elegant. Alexander Sergeyevich is depicted here with the maximum degree of certainty, as if in front of us is a living person or his photograph. The poet’s gaze and face are calm and at the same time there is a bit of anxiety or concern in them for something to come. Perhaps the poet contemplated his future, at least hidden fear is present in this picture, however, the overall impression of the picture is aesthetically positive.
