Executed about 1900, this miniature, painted on oval porcelain plaque is a partial copy after famous, painted in 1798 by the best then Russian portraitist Vladimir Lukich Borovikovski large-scala portrait of Princess Yekaterina Alexeevna Dolgorukaya, nee Countess Vasil'eva (1781-1860; see our image nr.5).

Princess Yekaterina Alexeevna was a daughter of Count A. I. Vaasil'ev and his wife V. S. Urusova. She married Lieutenant General Prince S. N. Folgorukyi. On 5th April 1797, being only 16 she became "freilina" (lady-in-waiting) of Paul I's consort, Empress Maria Fedorovna.

The famous Russian portraitist and historical painter Vladimir Lukich Borovikovski (1757 Mirgorod, Ukraine - 1825 St. Petersburg) was originally an officer. He quit in 1775, dedicated himself to painting pictures of saints, which he learned from his father, and painted iconostases in the churches of Mirgorod. Empress Catherine the Great viewed his works on her journey through Ukraine to Crimea and invited the artist to continue his education in St.Petersburg, where he turned to portrait painting, trained by Dimitri Levitski. But his very best teacher became Italian-Austrian portraitist Johann Baptist Lampi, who lived in St.Petersburg from 1790. In 1794 at Lampi's request Borovikovski was appointed a member of St.Petersburg Academy. He soon became a portrait painter of the royal family and Russian high aristocracy and remained in great demand as portraitist until his death in 1825.
