Portrait of A. N. Demidov, Prince of San-Donato
Oil on canvas, 1831 (Unfinished)
Palazzo Pitti, Galleria Palatina, Florence, Italy

Anatole Nikolayevich Demidov (1813-1870), was a well-known traveller and patron of art. In 1837, he acquired the Italian title of Prince de San Donato and married Princess Mathilde , daughter of Jerome Bonaparte . His Villa Demidoff is a minor landmark of Florence . Anatole's great grand nephew, Crown Prince Pavel , was regent of Yugoslavia between 1934 and 1941.
The Demidov ( Russian : Äåìè́äîâû ) family, also Demidoff , were probably the richest Russian people after the Tsar in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
Their progenitor, Demid Antufiev, was a free blacksmith from Tula , their family necropolis is preserved as a museum. His son Nikita Demidov (March 26, 1656 - November 17, 1725) made his fortune by his skill in the manufacture of weapons, and established an iron foundry for the government. Peter the Great , with whom he was a favorite, ennobled him to princely status in 1720.
