P.I. Chelishchev. “Pushkin and Count D.I. Khvostov.” Early 1830. Paper, Italian pencil. Chelischev had a talent for caricature. He depicted Pushkin close-up, full-length, pacing widely. In the background, a miniature figure of Khvostov, hunched over, on half-bent thin legs. This gives us an image of the giant Pushkin, walking with seven-mile strides, and little Khvostov, tangled under his feet.
