Oil on canvas. Signed and dated lower right. Gilt carved frame.
42 ? 36 cm.
Painted in 1888, this painting is a slightly reduced copy of an analogous portrait of Grand-Duke Georges Mikhaïlovitch which can now be found at the Donetsk Fine Arts Museum. The Museum had received the painting from Leningrad as a portrait of an unknown
officer with a dog. Whereas we have been able to identify the officer
as Grand-Duke Georges Mikhaïlovitch thanks to the photograph
(by unknown photographer) representing the Grand-Duke
with his dog Feldman. Apparently, the painter had used this photograph
while working on his portrait. The Donetsk portrait had
originally been housed at the Novo-Mikhaïlovsky Palace in Saint-
Petersburg that had belonged to Grand-Duke Georges Mikhaïlovitch
and his brothers.
Georges Mikhaïlovitch est reprénsenté en tenue de lieutenant (poroutchik)
de la garde et de flugel-adjudant (en tant que aide de
camp impériale il porte les aiguillettes et le monogramme de la
Suite). Le Grand duc fait partie du LG régiment de Lanciers à partir
de 1886. Il a été nommé à la Suite Impériale en 1883.
Une variante de notre portrait se trouve au Musée des Beauxarts
de Donetsk en Ukraine. Il y fut transferré du Palais Novo-
Mikhaïlovski à Saint-Pétersbourg. ?????? ??????????
