Kiprensky, O. A. Portrait of Alexei Romanovich Tomilov. 1808

Notes:
Portrait of Alexei Romanovich Tomilov (1779-1848), collector and art-lover This pleasantly serious portrait by the twenty-six-year-old Orest Kiprensky is reminiscent of the portraiture of the French Romantic painter, Pierre-Paul Prud'hon (1758-1823) in its refined, understated elegance and focus on the well-lit face.
