Vasily Vereshchagin’s “Turkestan Series” - Part One

Vasily Vereshchagin was a famous Russian Orientalist painter who in 1867 was invited by the military governor of Turkestan, Konstantine Kaufmann. The work inspired by his visit that followed became known as the “Turkestan series” which includes scenes of daily life and the Russian Empire’s war of conquest in Central Asia. Vereshchagin himself took part in the defense of Samarkand against the Bukharan Emir’s army in 1868, was wounded in the course of the battle, for which he was awarded the Order of St. George. Vereshchagin returned to St. Petersburg at the end of 1868 and began to work on the paintings. After holding an exhibition of his work in 1869, he returned once more to Turkestan.

“In fact, you know what’s in decline? Depictions of our dystopian and stupid future! Divergent and The Hunger Games are not as good as Fahrenheit 451, Walter Tevis’ overlooked Mockingbird (the best book about a future in which nobody can read) or Brave New World (whose moral axis is a savage schooled exclusively on the Complete Works of Shakespeare. Just sayin’). Think about that. Our future is so hollow that we’re losing the capacity to imagine its hollowness.”
