|Ivanov's oil sketches are, in some ways, more intriguing than his finished painting, which tends to be overworked.|
|Although the face of Christ is strong and loving, it seems to lack the character to be found in Ivanov's other faces such as that of John the Baptist, as if he felt restrained by conventional depictions of the time.|
