Due to COVID-19 most of us are bound to home and some are sharing the products of their creative processes. We would like to draw your attention on some “adjusted” artwork of Russian nineteenth-century artists Alexander Ivanov, Karl Bryullov, Ilya Repin, and Viktor Vasnetsov. Apostrophe is presenting images of well-known Russian paintings and how they would look like during our times of social distancing.
