Portrait of a Man in Greatcoat

Russia, 1820s

We do not yet know who is depicted in this portrait. The text on a sticker on the back of the canvas indicates that it came from Alexandrovskoye, the merchant Pavel Pavlovich Riabushinsky’s estate near Moscow. It has yet to be determined whether this was a family portrait or part of Riabushinsky’s small collection of Russian paintings. An important factor for establishing the past history of the painting is an inventory sticker from the trading house Muir and Merrilees (now TsUM – the Central Department Store), which includes the basic characteristics of the painting. Its presence confirms that the painting was in Moscow in the first half of the 1920s.
