Portrait of a Young Man in a Green Caftan by Ivan Nikitin

Portrait of a Young Man in a Green Caftan by Ivan Nikitin

1 september—31 october 2022

When in 1897 the Emperor Alexander III Russian Museum received the painting Portrait of a Young Man in a Green Caftan (late 1720s – before August 8, 1732) as a donation from the art collection of Prince Alexei Lobanov-Rostovsky, it was deemed to be an early 18th-century painting by an anonymous artist. The remarkable portrait was later thought to have possibly come from the hand of Ivan Nikitin, but sufficient evidence to prove that came to light only as recently as the mid-2010s, in the findings of a multidisciplinary study and thorough restoration.
