that we had the opportunity of seeing at the Scandinavian
exhibition in Copenhagen was less characteristic of
the Russian people, because the workman in part had
often been carried away by French designs and patterns,
and in part because, as a whole, this art came rather
from the mountaineers of the Caucasus than from the
Russian people proper. They seem here to have
preferred to work with elegance rather than with
individuality, and especially to have preferred to present proofs
of the talent of the Russians in imitation, rather than
their remarkable gifts of compelling the foreigners on
their own soil to create artistic effects in the Russian
style and spirit.
