Gustave Doré's illustrated book The Rare and Extraordinary History of Holy Russia (1854) features a red splodge (right) which represents the reign of Ivan the Terrible.

The caption reads:

"Suite du règne d'Ivan le Terrible. Devant tant de crimes, clignons l'oeil pour n'en rien y voir que l'aspect général."

English translation:

"Continuation of the reign of Ivan the Terrible. Faced with such crimes, let's blink our eyes to not see anything than the broad picture." (tr. J.W. Geerinck)
