Dmitry Levitzky Biography

Dmitry Grigorievich Levitzky is, without doubt, the leading Russian painter of the latter half of the 18th Century, as well as the first Russian painter to paint at the level of contemporary Western European masters. Levitzky specialized in the art of the portrait, which was in great demand in Russian high society at the time, as it sought to emulate its counterparts in the rest of Europe.
