Portrait of Peter I

Type by Godfrey Kneller. Early 18th century

Peter, the young Russian tsar, is depicted without a wig, wearing a suit of armour and a mantle lined with ermine over his right shoulder. This shoulder-length portrait is based on the original full length portrait painted by Gottfried Kneller in 1698 during Peter’s stay in London.
