Bryullov, Karl. 1799-1852

Portrait of Retired Lieutenant N.A. Okhotnikov

Russia, 1827

Nikolai Alexeyevich Okhotnikov (?–1861) was the son of Alexei Andreyevich Okhotnikov (1752–1824) and Natalia Grigoryevna, née Viazemsky (1774–?). He served briefly in the Life-Guards Uhlan Regiment, becoming a cornet in 1823 and retiring with the rank of lieutenant in 1824. He was a landowner in Kaluga province. In 1826–28 Nikolai was in Italy, which is where Karl Briullov painted his portrait. His brother Konstantin Alexeyevich Okhotnikov (ca. 1789–1824) was actively involved in the Union of Salvation, whose members would mount the Decembrist Revolt against Tsarism the year after his early death from consumption.
