    Rokotov’s portrait is a version of the large portrait of Catherine by the Swedish artist Antoine Roslin, and was one of the most popular state portraits of the Empress. Her gesture with the sceptre towards the bust of Peter the Great and the inscription ‘She is completing that which was begun’ drove home the message that Catherine was continuing emperor's work
