Valentin Serov - After suppression, 1905.
Here Tsar Nicholas II with a tennis racket under his arm (he was a passionate tennis player) awards the generals for suppressing the popular revolt. The row behind seems to be corpses, and the person in the carriage looks like the Tsarina.
During the first russian revolution Serov made several critical drawings. Serov did not support authority’s actions though he  portrayed the members of the imperial family several years before that. (And since 1905 he refused such offers).
