Title: Artist Pavel Chistyakov
Description:
Ivan Nikolaevich Kramskoi (1837 - 1887) 
Portrait of the Artist Pavel Petrovich Chistyakov, 1860
The Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia

Pavel Petrovich Chistyakov (Russian: ́ ́ ́) (July 5 [O.S. June 23] 1832 – November 11, 1919) was a Russian painter and teacher of art.

He studied at the St.Petersburg Academy of arts (1849 - 1861) under Petr Basin. He was a pensioner of the Academy of Arts in Paris and in Rome (1862-1870). He taught in the Drawing School of the Petersburg Society for the Encouragement of the Applied Arts (1860-1864), and in St.Petersburg ( 1872) he was the professor-head of workshop (1908-1910) and managing mosaic branch (1890-1912). The art-pedagogical system of Chistyakov, whose students included Viktor Vasnetsov, Mikhail Vrubel, Vasily Polenov, Ilya Repin, Valentin Serov, and Vasily Surikov, developed in constant struggle against the inert system of academism and played a huge role in the development of realism in Russian art of the second half of the 19th century.
 
This painting, Sophia of Lithuania at the Wedding of Vasily the Blind, won the graduate Chistyakov the Gold Medal (1861) and an opportunity to study in Rome.

The main goal of Chistyakov was the preparation of the artist-citizen possessing high professional skill. His pedagogical method assumed the merger of the direct perception of nature by the artist with its scientific study. In creative practice he aspired to dramatization of a historical plot and psychological saturation in historical and genre portraits.
