Portrait of Anna Makarova (?)

Russia, 1867-1868 (?)

The face of the young girl in the portrait bears a strong resemblance to the artist’s daughter, Anna. This is particularly noticeable if the Hermitage painting is compared to the portrait of Anna Makarova in the Mordovian S.D. Erzia Republican Fine Arts Museum in Saransk. This hypothesis about the identity of the subject is borne out by the time when the portrait was made: judging by the style of the chemise, it was painted in the 1860s. Since Anna was the second of the fourteen children of Ivan Kuzmich Makarov’s marriage to Olga Nikolayevna Miasoyedova, which began in 1863, it seems a fair assumption that she is the subject of the Hermitage portrait. If that is the case, the date can be narrowed down to 1867–68. Anna Ivanovna Makarova (1866–1943) took the surname Lebedeva on her marriage.
