Catalogue Note

After his first appearance at the Paris Salon in 1875 where his paintings were well received by French critics, Harlamoff swiftly found commercial success. He rented a representative studio at Place Pigalle, where he would receive his mainly French and English patrons and sell his paintings directly without the need to exhibit them at the Salon.

Despite residing in Paris where he found international success, Harlamoff remained connected to Russia, often visiting his homeland and participating in various exhibitions. In the early 1880s he joined the Itinerants, regularly submitting paintings to their shows. The present work was shown at the 31st Itinerant Exhibition in 1903-04.
