Signed and dated - Milot 1825 - and bearing a label with an authentic legend on verso, this relatively large (18,5 x 12 cm) rectangular miniature on ivory shows 48-year-old Polish-born Russian diplomat, from 1824 and until his death (1828) General Consul of Russia in Prussian seaport Danzig (now Gdansk, Poland), Anthoni Erazm (in Russian documents Antonyi Ksaverievich) Makarowicz.
Although the miniature (as said above) bears date 1825 it is a representation from 1820 - the legend on verso says it is a copy after a 1820 dated - miniature (whereabouts unknown) by Alexander Molinari (the latter came from Russia to Warsaw in 1817 and stayed there until 1822 (and later in 1829-1830; CLICK HERE FOR OTHER WORKS OF THE LATTER IN OUR POSSESSION).
1820 was an important year for the sitter - on 30th October of that year he was awarded his second order - Russian St.Vladimir of the 4th class (see image nr.14; this cross we see on his chest).
His first award - Polish Order of St.Stanislaw of the 3rd class (neck cross) he obtained still on 6th September 1818.
Antoni Erazm Makarowicz was born in 1772 as a son of Polish politician (in 17894 significant participant of Kosciuszko Uprising) Franciszek Ksavery Makarowicz (1739-1815; see our image nr.15). The family was of Armenian descent.
Concerning Antoni's career we found very scarce information. We learned that in 1820s he was in the rank of a "nadvorny sovetnik" (court councillor), being (as said above) from 1824 Russian General Consul in Danzig (where he died in 1828). He was succeeded in Danzig by Russian diplomat Ludwig Valerianovich Tengoborskyi.
Author of this miniature, Milot is mentioned by Thieme-Becker and Nagler as portrait miniaturist who exhibited between 1822-1826 in Berlin. Obviously he was in 1825 in Danzig (then Prussian town) where he was commissioned by Makarowicz for a copy after Molinari's original miniature.
