R. N. Stroganova by Ivan Nikitich Nikitin (location unknown to gogm)
lady portrayed by Ivan Nikitich Nikitin shows Western style just
beginning to enter Russia. Peter the Great westernized
Russia, including dress, after his accession in 1682. Russian style is derived
from western style, but can be much more more opulent. Here is a Russian
lady of the Stroganov family attempting to deal with a Fontanges-style
headdress and engageantes. Notice the cameo of Peter the Great on her
throat.The Wikipedia article for Ivan Nikitich Nikitin is here.
The Stroganov family are Russian nobility that recur throughout Tsarist history, akin to the Spencer family in the UK or the Albas in Spain.
