Russian officer Nikolay Rezanov (1764–1807) stands in the port of Nagasaki. He faces a soldier at left, and his attendant, at right, holds a Russian flag. A yellow cartouche at upper left reads “Illustration of Russians who arrived at Nagasaki in the ninth month of the first year of the Bunka era [1804].”
