Taras Shevchenko. Death of Bohdan Khmelnytsky. Sketches.
Pencil on paper (26,3 × 36,6 cm). [Ed.]. [1842-1843].
Lower left ink inscription by Chestahivsky: "Death of Khmelnytsky".
On sheet – three sketches story "Death of Khmelnitsky", two sketches of unknown content and outline figures of a peasant and a peasant woman with a child.
Sketches made on the back anatomical drawings, dated 1842, which was the basis for determining the date of original sketches, outline figures of a peasant and a peasant woman executed in 1843 in Ukraine.
A. Novitsky mistakenly identifies this figure with picture, described by Chestahivsky under number 68 ("Taras Shevchenko as a painter, Lviv – Moscow, 1914, p. 72, № 513), while this picture registered by Chestahivsky under the number 85.
