Petr Fedorovich Sokolov (1791-1848)-Circle "Portrait of a Russian gentleman", watercolor, ca. 1820
Acquired from the heirs of a noble Russian couple (emigrated from Russia after the Revolution of 1917), this watercolor portrait from ca. 1820 depicts one of their relatives (unortunately, his name is no longer traceable). This portrait resembles works of famous Russian early-19th-century watercolor artist, Petr Fedorovich Sokolov. Curator of the 19th century Russian paintings in collection of St. Petersburg State Hermitage. Juri Gudymenko found recently (see our image nr.4) a great fisiognomical resemblance between the sitter of this small watercolor portrait and that of the belonging to Hermitage Collection portrait of unknown man painted in 1817 (i.e. in the same period) by Russian artist Michail Nikolaevich Shamshin (1777-1846).
Petr Fedorovich Sokolov (1791 Moscow - 1848 village Stary Merchik, Kharkov Gouv.) was in 1800 (at the age of 9) enrolled in St. Petersburg Academy, where he joined the class of historical painting under V.K. Shebuev. In 1809, he obtained a gold academic medal. Still, he found his true vocation in another genre: shortly after graduating from the Academy (1810) he began painting portraits, at first, using Italian graphite as medium, later - watercolor.
