200 years anniversary of the Russian victory in the Patriotic war 1812 against Napoleon

200 years ago the Russian army ran a victory over Napoleon’s army during the Patriotic War 1812. To commemorate a great event in the Russian history a unique  exhibition “The Patriotic War of 1812 in engravings” is  held in 34 cities of the Russian Federation. 180 000 people could see 62 engravings with the same theme – the victory in the battle of Borodino 1812. Those are the works of the artists who lived 200 years ago. They chose caricature as a genre. This form was expressive and at the same time understandable to everyone.
