Biography Lev Evgrafovich Dmitriev-Kavkazskii
Evgrafovich Dmitriev-Kavkazsky was an engraver on copper, a graphic
artist, and etcher. The artist added 'Kavkazsky' to his surname,
stemming from his nickame 'Caucasian', since he was born in the
Caucasus, to differentiate himself from other artists named Dmitriev. In
1869 he attended the Academy of Fine Arts, where he was taught by F. I.
Jordan. He was awarded two academy silver medals for etchings of works
after Rubens and Rembrandt.
In 1883-1884 Dmitriev-Kavkazsky edited the
illustrated journal Swallow, in which reproductions by
predominantly Russian artists were used. Subsequently, for three years,
he contributed to the journal Displaying 750 of 1726 characters.
