Description: signed and dated Harlamoff/1888 (lower left)

oil on canvas

RUSSIAN, 1842-1915

Notes: Harlamoff was born in Saratov, Russia. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, and won a gold medal and travel scholarship in 1868 for his painting entitled The Return of the Prodigal Son. The stipend enabled him to study in Paris at the École des Beaux Arts under the great portrait painter and teacher Léon Bonnat. Harlamoff's work was exhibited in the Russian section of the Décennale Exhibition, part of the Paris 1900 Exposition Universalle.

A renowned official portraitist, Harlamoff's sitters included Ivan Turgenev, Tsar Alexander II, and Prince Demidoff. Harlamoff is best remembered today for his informal portraits of young peasant girls, chosen for their beauty and innocence.
