Krüger, Franz. 1797-1857

Portrait of Alexander Arkadyevich Suvorov

Germany, 1851

Alexander Arkadyevich Suvorov (1804–1882), a grandson of the famous generalissimo, also rose to the top of the Russian military. He served as Governor General of the Baltic Region (1848–61) and Military Governor General of St Petersburg (1861–66). He was also made a member of the State Council in 1861. This portrait was painted to a commission from Nicholas I for the Small Field Marshals’ Hall of the Winter Palace. It shows Suvorov in the uniform of an Adjutant General with an impressive display of orders: of the White Eagle, St Vladimir third class, St Anne third class, St George fourth class, St Stanislas third class, the Red Eagle (Prussia), Leopold (Austria), Francis I (Kingdom of the Two Sicilies), the Dannebrog (Denmark), Virtuti Militari (Poland), the Lion and Sun (Persia) and the Annunciata (Italy), plus a Maltese Cross and the badge for 25 years’ impeccable service.
