Nikolai Nikanorovich Dubovskoy ( Novocherkassk, Russia 1859 - St. Petersburg 1918 )
Dubovskoy’s artistic talent was apparent from an early age, when he would copy pictures from illustrated magazines. At the age of seventeen, he was sent to St. Petersburg to the Imperial Academy of Arts, where he studied under one of the fathers of Russian landscape painting, Baron Mikhail Konstantinovich Klodt von Jurgensburg. Having graduated in 1881, Dubovskoy decided to travel throughout Europe and the Middle East before returning to Russia, where he forged a reputation as one of the country’s greatest landscape painters.
