Ivan Petrovich Prianishnikov ( Russian 1841 - 1909 )
Although biographical details for Prianishnikov are relatively scarce, it is known that he spent much of his life in the U.S.A. and France, though he exhibited frequently in Russia throughout the 1880s. His scenes of military life were often reproduced in journals throughout Europe, such as Niva, a ‘journal of literature, politics, and public life’ which was notable for the quality of its illustrations, and to which many of the leading luminaries of Russian art also contributed.
