Count Lamsdorff

Count Alexander Nikolaevitch Lamsdorff, 1859. Twenty-four years old when this portrait was painted, the count was the husband of Alexandra Nikolaevna Lamsdorff, an aristocrat and powerful figure in the Russian court. The book in the young count’s lap is of English poetry. He is wearing a fashionable day dress of the time.

Digital painting after Winterhalter.
