Biography Oreste Kiprensky
OREST KIPRESNKY (1782-1836) Orest Adamovich Kiprensky was a
prominent Russian Romantic artist. Born near St Petersburg in 1782, the
illegitimate son of a landowner, he was raised as a serf but with the
help of his natural father, from the age of six, studied at the Imperial
Academy of Arts in St Petersburg. Following considerable acclaim, and a
further period of study in Naples, Kiprensky settled in Moscow from
1809 and from 1812 in St Petersburg. In mid-May 1816, having been
appointed Adviser to the Academy of Arts, he was given state support to
travel to Italy and, from 1816 to1822 lived in Rome and Naples.
