EDITORS COMMENTS
Catherine II of Russia, also known as Catherine the Great, is depicted in this stunning equestrian portrait painted by Danish artist Vigilius Erichsen in 1782. The Russian empress is shown riding on her horse Brillante, dressed in the uniform of the prestigious Preobrazhensky Regiment's Life Guards. The intricately designed military uniform, complete with a frock coat, boots with carriage boots, and a hat adorned with gold and metallic threads, accentuates Catherine's regal presence. Her long, flowing hair is styled in an elegant updo, adding to her majestic appearance. The portrait offers a glimpse into the concept of cross-dressing in the 18th century, as Catherine often dressed as a man to assert her authority and gain respect in the male-dominated military sphere. The use of vibrant colors and intricate embroidery on the uniform and the horse's trappings adds to the grandeur of the painting. Catherine II, a Danish princess by birth, ruled Russia from 1762 until her death in 1796. She is known for her significant contributions to Russian culture and history, including the expansion of the Russian Empire and the patronage of the arts. This portrait, a testament to her military prowess and leadership abilities, is a valuable addition to any art collection or gallery.
