That looks... flat. Like it's a cardboard cutout or something propped against the window for Halloween.
I agree about the resemblance to John Lennon - the same thing struck me at first glance. However, it appears the nose doesn't quite match Lennon's.
The garment appears to be an Eastern Orthodox or Slavic cassock. My first guess is that it might be some sort of poster related to a special event or perhaps the Hotel Wassilioff's history (it was founded by a Russian in the 19th century).
That's all I can offer without additional clues ...
