First Illustrator of Dead Souls Established

The first portrait gallery of characters from Vasili Gogols famous poem Dead Souls was created by the writers contemporary artist Mikhail Bashilov, Nina Zubkova from the Russian National Library assumes.
      These were 15 watercolours and ink and crayon graphic works included in the binding of the poems first edition of 1842 that provoked search of their author.
      The artist did not sign any of the miniatures, the fact allowing an assumption that Gogol himself made those pictures. However, the level of the illustrations evidently excelled the abilities of Gogol as a graphic artist.
