Struisky, Nikolay Eremeevich (1749-1796), poet, published his works in his own print-shop; admired Rokotov and collected many of his works; Rokotov trained Struisky's serf A. Zyablov; despite his 'poetic character' advocated serfdom, lived in his estate Ruzayevka. See also the portrait of his wife Struiskaya, Alexandra Petrovna (1754-1840)
