Russian monogramist O.K. "Young mother at the cradle of her child", fine miniature, 1800/05
Price: ON REQUEST
(please note additional 13% tax applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)
This work was executed in the early 1800s (note the woman's dress and hairstyle). It is an octagonally shaped (typical form of Russian portrait miniatures of that time) portrait of a young woman seating at the cradle of her infant. The portrait is clearly monogrammed "O.K." - an instant reminder of a similar monogram detectable in early works of famous Russian painter (sometimes a miniaturist working on ivory - see our images nr.9-12.) - Orest Adamovich Kiprenski. Although insisting on his authorship here would be overly confident, one shall not disregard the possibility of dealing with one of Kiprenski´s earliest works (perhaps, from his academic years).
As it is commonly known from his biography, Orest Adamovich Kiprenski (1782-1836) was admitted into the boarding school of St. Petersburg Imperial Academy of Art already at the age of six. He first studied at the boarding school and then at the Academy until 1803. Kiprenski lived at the Academy premises as a pensioner in order to fulfill all necessary requirements needed to win the Major Gold medal. The winning of the first prize for his historical painting "Prince Dmitri Donskoi after the Battle of Kulikovo" (1805; see our image nr.15) enabled the young artist to go abroad to study art in Europe. He became with time a renowned portraitist of pan-European recognition.
