Illustrated Envelop with special cancellation
|Description||Mikhail Semyonovich Shchepkin (17 November [O.S. 6 November] 1788, the village Krasnoe, Oboyan county, Kursk Province — 11 August [O.S. 23 August] 1863) was the most famous Russian Empire actor of the 19th century. He is considered the “father” of realist acting in Russia and, via the influence of his student, Glikeriya Fedotova, a major influence on the development of the ‘system’ of Konstantin Stanislavski (who was born in the year in which Shchepkin died). Shchepkin’s significance to the Theatre of Russia is comparable to that of David Garrick to the English theatre.|
