About the Artist
Alexei Harlamoff lived from 1849 to 1905. He was born in Saratov, Russia, and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in St Petersburg, where he won a gold medal and a travel scholarship in 1868. With the money, he travelled to Paris, where he worked with the great portrait painter and teacher at the cole des Beaux-Arts, Leon Bonnet.
At the start of his career, he painted mainly religious, military and genre subjects, but he was asked to paint an increasing number of portraits, including one of Tsar Alexander II. However, his favourite subjects were informal portraits of peasant girls, painted for their beauty and innocence rather than their fame.

About the Print
This print is finished with a matte "textured" coating, which gives your art an elegant appearance. Then, we framed it in our F4328 "masterpiece" frame, giving a museum quality appearance. All of our richly designed frames have an antique finish with subtle accents to highlight the intricate detail, then a low sheen sealer is applied. The Watermark in the center of the images will not appear on final art.

About the Frame
These masterpiece frames are made of solid wood, with the exception of the F3242 frame, which is cast resin, and then covered with an outer layer of sculpting material called Gesso (pronounced like Jesso). You can see this outer layer on the side views of the frames. Gesso is a traditional mix of a glue binder, chalk, and white pigment, used to coat rigid surfaces, such as wooden painting panels as an absorbent primer coat substrate for painting. It is also used by sculptures to prepare the shape of the final sculpture (fused bronze) or directly as a material for sculpting. Gesso can also be used as a layer between sculptured wood and gold leaf. A collection of gesso sculptures is properly called gypsotheque. Please allow 5-7 weeks for this work of art.
