Although unsigned, this exceedingly qualitative miniature on ivory is a very typical and - as we believe - a truly authentic work of Russian court miniaturist Ivan Andreevich Winberg (for comparison, see our images nr.9-14). It was made (alike Winberg's (similarly unsigned) work housed in the Tretyakov Gallery; see our image nr.9) after (published in 1826) engraving by the English artist Thomas Wright. It turn, the latter made it after 1821 oil portrait of Nikolai I by English artist George Dawe (see our image nr.8), who was at the time living in St. Petersburg.
Ivan Andreevich Winberg (1798 Helsinki - 1851 St. Petersburg) was a well-known Russian miniaturist and son of the Swedish-born, St. Petersburg goldsmith Andreas Winberg (1756 - after 1827), who from 1779 worked in Russia. From the early 1820s Winberg studied at the St. Petersburg Imperial Academy of Fine Arts, where he regularly exhibited his miniature portraits from 1824. In 1830 he received the title of "naznacheny v akademiki" (Associate of the Academy) artist and - in 1846 - titles of Professor and Academician (Member of the Academy) of miniature painting.
He also regularly exhibited his miniatures at annual academic exhibitions (1824, 1833, 1836, etc.). He was also active at the Court, which is evident from his miniature portraits (on ivory) of Alexander I, Nikolai I, Prince Kochubei, Count Sukhtelen, Empress Alexandra Fedorovna, Alexander II (as Grandduke), and other members of St. Petersburg high society.
Winberg's son, Ivan Ivanovich Winberg, was also a miniaturist.
Many portraits of Ivan Andreevich Winberg can be viewed in most esteemed museums of Russia: Tretyakov Gallery, Russian Museum, Hermitage, State Historical Museum, as well as other important Russian museum collections. His other works achieve increasingly high prices at the current antique market.
