The artist is Charleman
Streltsky lieutenant colonel Ivan Tsykler, who passed in 1689 to the side of the young king from the encirclement of Princess Sophia, was made by the Duma nobleman and governor in Verkhoturye, and then sent by Peter to the construction of the Taganrog fortress. After a few years, the “honorary link” of Tsykler, not satisfied with his position and introduced innovations, conceived, together with like -minded people from the boyar environment, to make an attempt on the sovereign. It was supposed to set fire to the house where Peter was, and during the fire to kill him. Devoted by two archers, the conspirators were exposed and sentenced to death. In the picture, Charlemagnes captured the dramatic episode on February 23, 1697, when Peter, having learned about the conspiracy, personally appeared at the place of secret gathering and arrested its participants. The artist, having immersed the room in the half and concentrating the viewer’s attention on their faces, masterfully converted the conspirators and the determination of Peter frozen on the threshold.
