Art of the Romanov Dynasty | Part 2

This is a four-part lecture on the art of the Romanov Dynasty that includes a video and a written essay. During Part 1 we learned of the rise of the Romanov family and the crowning of the first Romanov tsar, Michael I. The first 100 years of the Romanov Dynasty was a period of barbarianism as Russia struggled through the Middle Ages for hundreds of years longer than Europe. The next 100 years, the period covered during Part 2, is a time of westernization for Russia; as two of their most famous tsars, Peter the Great and Catherine the Great steer their country into the future.
