    • found: Grove Art Online, Apr. 27, 2017(Lubok: Russian popular print, a brightly coloured woodcut or engraving produced from the mid-17th century to the late 19th. Executed in a naive yet expressive style, it may depict folktales and amusing stories while also containing elements of political propaganda or social and moral advice. Lubki were initially conceived as 'paper icons' and were of a religious nature. Peter the Great, however, realized their effectiveness and used them to popularize his own reforms. Those depicting the enforced cutting of beards to comply with his Europeanization programme of 1705 are particularly notable , while others are clearly propagandist and depict the tsar as Alexander the Great or as the folk hero Il'ya Muromets. Russian peasants are often treated and are charmingly depicted in both the enchanting images and the archaic texts that usually accompany each picture. During the mid-18th century woodcuts were gradually phased out and replaced by inventive and vividly executed copper-engravings depicting the lifestyle and refined social conventions of the merchant classes)
