German portraitist Georg Caspar Prenner (c.1720-1766) came to Russia in
1750 on the invitation of count Mikhail Illarionovich Vorontsov. His contract
was for 5 years, during which he became so wealthy that could lend his
patron, Count Vorontsov, big sums of money. Though after the end of the
contract it was not renewed, as Vorontsov thought the artist to be “hot-tempered,
who could not live in peace with others.”

We found two portraits by Prenner, which he executed in Russia.
