Vladimir Borovikovsky



Portrait of Vladimir Borovikovsky
by Ivan Bugaevsky-Blagodatny





"Vladimir Lukich Borovikovsky (1757-1825) - (Russian: Влади́мир Луки́ч Боровико́вский) was a Russian painter of Ukrainian origin who dominated portraiture in Russia at the turn of the 19th century.

Vladimir Borovikovsky was born in Myrhorod (now Ukraine) on July 24, 1757. His father, Luka Borovyk was a Ukrainian Cossack and an amateur icon painter. According to the family tradition, all four of Borovyk's sons served in Myrhorod regiment, but Volodymyr retired early at the rank of poruchik and devoted his life to art — mostly icon painting for local churches.

Borovikovsky may have lived the remainder his life as an amateur painter in a provincial town if not for an unexpected event. His friend Vasyl Kapnist was preparing an accommodation for Empress Catherine II in Kremenchuk during her travel to newly conquered Crimea. Kapnist asked Borovikovsky to paint two allegoric paintings (Peter I of Russia and Catherine II as peasants sowing seeds and Catherine II as a Minerva) for her rooms. The paintings so pleased the Empress that she requested that the painter move to Saint Petersburg.

After September 1788 Borovikovsky lived in Saint Petersburg where he changed his surname from the Cossack "Borovyk" to the more aristocratic-sounding "Borovikovsky". For his first ten years in Saint Petersburg, he lived in the house of the poet, architect, musician and art theorist, Prince Nikolay Lvov, whose ideas strongly influenced Borovikovsky's art. At the age of 30 years, he was too old to attend Imperial Academy of Arts, so he took private lessons from Dmitry Levitzky and later from Austrian painter Johann Baptist Lampi.

In 1795 he was appointed an academician. He became a popular portrait painter and created about 500 portraits during his lifetime, 400 of which survived to the 21st century. He had his own studio, and often relied on assistants to paint the less important parts of a portrait. His sitters included members of the imperial family, courtiers, generals, many aristocrats, and figures from the Russian artistic and literary worlds. Most of his portraits are intimate in style.

Borovikovsky never taught in the Imperial Academy of Art but pupils lived in his home. Among them were Alexey Venetsianov and Bugaevsky-Blagodarny (who painted the only survived portrait of Vladimir Borovikovsky).

After 1819 Borovikovsky became a Freemason, member of a lodge Dying Sphinx. At that time he mostly painted icons, including Iconostasis of the Smolensky Cemetery church and some icons for Kazan Cathedral in Saint-Petersburg.

On April 6, 1825 he died suddenly of a heart attack and was interned in the Lazarus Cemetery of the Alexander Nevsky Monastery in Saint Petersburg."

The text was taken from Wikipedia.

Great thread.
Thank you very much

For me this is the most difficult topic. Preparation of any post here takes from several hours to a whole day.

The hardest thing is to determine whether this painting was really painted by this artist.



For example: Портрет Екатерины Кропотовой / Portrait of Catherine Kropotova







On many sites, this picture is among the paintings of Borovikovsky.

But on one of the sites it is write that this portrait is "excluded from the number of works by Borovikovsky on the basis of stylistic and technological data."

What should I do with the portrait after all this?

On the one hand there is a categorical opinion without references, for example, to an art critic, and on the other hand there are several sites that are also not managed by art historians.

Therefore, I ask everyone to treat my posts with a certain amount of skepticism. I could (inadvertently) to repeat someone’s erroneous identification for some pictures.
