A full-sized watercolor by Franz Kruger (1797-1857), professor at the Prussian Academy of Arts, portrait painter of Nicholas I, arching towards the viewer, depicts the equestrian departure of the imperial family after the parade. In the center, on a black horse, the emperor himself. Nearby is Grand Duke Mikhail Pavlovich, the tsars brother and young heir to the throne, on a perky, dapple-white horse, in the uniform of the Life Guards Hussar Regiment. Completes the compositional arc - the crew with Alexandra Fedorovna and daughters. The date 1847 and the signature are originally placed on the frame of the wagon. Masterfully arranged in color, the image is squeezed along the edges by armed regiments, among which young people greet the emperor. A bold historical watercolor revealing the complexity of Nicholas Is relationship with the troops.
