The picture takes the viewer into the era of Peter and makes him witness of a dramatic confrontation between the great reformer of Russia and his unlucky, limited son caught in intrigues and betrayal. The vivid expressiveness of the depicted conflict gives the canvas a psychological anxiety. The striking contrast between Peter and Alexey does not only reveal the essence of the ideological struggle characteristic foe turbulent, full of contradictions era, but also speaks of the personal drama of Peter, who dreamed of seeing his son continue his reforms, but met a stubborn opponent. To make the historical canvas sound convincing, the artist thoroughly studied the era, its material culture, and portraits of the people depicted.
