Vasily Perov

Vasily Perov (1834-1882) was a Russian painter of genre scenes and portraits. Many of his works display humor or irony, but others are dead serious. His paintings show him to be a keen observer of all levels of Russian society. Here is a YouTube movie about Perov (in Russian with English subtitles), focusing on the final painting of this set, his portrait of Dostoyevsky.
