A Promenade in the Woods (Ivan Shishkin, 1860s)

We had a glorious day in the Northeast today, and Nicky and I went out on a lovely motor into the countryside. Here are some people in the 1860s painted by the great Russian landscape artist Ivan Shishkin doing exactly the same thing. I do daresay that they are enjoying the beautiful day as much as we did!
