M.O. Gershenzon and his golden retriever Zor'ka
This is a photo of Russian Silver Age-era Pushkin scholar, intellectual, and philosopher, Mikhail Osipovich Gershenzon who was active in the Russian scholarly scene both pre-October and post-October Revolution; he is pictured with his dog, a female golden retriever named Zor'ka. The photo was taken in 1903, according to the family. In the photo, Zor'ka seems to be imploring Gershenzon, with a paw upon Gershenzon's arm and the two appear to be smiling at each other.
