Nikolay Nikolayevich Gay, a Russian artist, was born into a noble family of French origin: his great-grandfather emigrated from France at the end of the 18th century during the Great French Revolution. The parents of Gay died when he was still a child. He was brought up by his serf nurse, who taught him, as he later said, compassion for the humiliated and insulted, a keen sense of other people’s sorrows. Read Nikolay Gay's Full Biography
