My collection.

* Nikolay Shilder was born to a Baltic German father. He graduated from the Imperial Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg. He became an academician of the Academy in 1861.
When Pavel Tretyakov bought his painting "The Temptation" in 1856, it marked the start of his collection (together with Vasili Khudyakov's The Smugglers) which later turned into the Tretyakov Gallery.


* Baltisaksa päritolu kunstniku Nikolai Schilderi maal "Kiusatus" oli üks neist kahest maalist, millest sai alguse kuulus Tretjakovi Galerii Moskvas.
Maal kujutab neiut, kes elab koos oma vana emaga ja teenib elatist käsitööga. Neiu koju tuleb "kosjamoor", kes pakub talle võimalust rahuldada ühe rikka mehe seksisoove, et saada raha...
