Dmitry Levitzky. Portrait of Count A. I. Vorontsov.
Vorontsov, Artemy Ivanovich  (1748-1813) - Count, Privy Councillor, Senator and Chamberlain. He was the son of Lieutenant General Ivan Illarionovich Vorontsov and Maria Artemyevna, née Volynskaya. He possessed a very large fortune, but went bankrupt by the end of his life, and had to agree to a marriage between his younger daughter, Praskovya, and a rich landlord from a family of former serfs. He was married to Praskovya Feodorovna Vorontsova (1750-1797), née Kvashina-Samarina, daughter of Feodor Alexeyevich Kvashin-Samarin and Anna Yuryevna, née Rzhevskaya. They had daughters: Maria Artemyevna Vorontsova (1777-1866), maid of honor to Empress Maria Feodorovna, who moved to Italy in the 1820s, converted to Catholicism and died in Florence; Anna Artemyevna Vorontsova (1777-1854), who married Count D. P. Buturlin, one of the most educated persons of his time and Director of the Imperial Hermitage; they moved to Italy in 1817, had 4 children, also converted into Catholicism, and died in Florence; their son M. D. Buturlin wrote memoirs about the family; Ekaterina Artemyevna Vorontsova (1780-1836), maid of honor to Grand Duchess Anna Feodorovna, was prominent in the court until the end of her life and had an apartment in the Winter Palace; Praskovya Artemyevna Vorontsova (1786-1842), was raised in the Smolny Institute, which she finished with honors, and in 1813 married A. U. Timofeev, a landlord of rather humble origins from Tambov province. See the portrait of Artemy Vorontsov's brother I. I. Vorontsov.
