Rasputin and His Female Admirers

Screen Shot 2016-02-03 at 9.18.20 PM

Grigori Rasputin was a Russian peasant who became an infamous, mystical faith healer to the aristocrats of Russia right before the revolution. Rasputin’s influence over Nicholas II, the last Tsar of Russia, has become legend and potentially helped lead to his downfall. At the very least, the obsession with the occult came to symbolize an out-of-touch elite.

In this pic, Rasputin is in his salon surrounded by his female admirers in early 1914. Historians believe Rasputin (he is the bearded mystic with the crazy eyes in the center) was most likely celebrating his birthday. His father is the other bearded man, 4th from the right. The photo was by Karl Bulla.
