A man in Eastern European costume holding a barrow. Probably after Alexander Ossipovich Orlowski. Alexander Osipovich Orlovsky (Warsaw 1777 - St. Petersburg 1832) was a talented battle scene painter, portrait painter and caricaturist whose range of medium included watercolours, oils, engravings and pastels. Orlovsky travelled extensively and was a volunteer in the partisan group led by Thadeusz Kosciuszko in the Polish liberation movement and uprising of 1794. He moved to Russia in 1802 where he settled in St. Petersburg and was a court artist for the Grand Duke Konstantin Pavlovich, for whom he executed drawings of uniforms and military parades. During his period in St. Petersburg he created numerous genre scenes and also society portraits. In 1816 he became one of the first artists to produce lithographs in Russia.
