Yoshizawa's newsreels

Hi all. I like to search about folding history in visual media. The newsreels files serve as an excellent source. I found many newsreels online related in British Pathé.

Hello.
When I saw the 1792 box, it seemed to me like the one in the diagram I am attaching.

Petrov (1855), which is at the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. The other is a painting by CHAUDET-HUSSON Jeanne Elisabeth...
