Féodor Petrovich Tchoumakoff is a famed Russian artist. He was born in St. Petersburg and studied and was trained at the St. Petersburg Theatre Arts Academy. In 1840 Tchoumakoff began to study at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts. The works he did during his studies earned high recognition from Karl Brüllov. After successfully graduating from the academy, he received a chance to take a study trip to Italy. In 1852 he was given an honorary academic title. Starting in 1857, Tchoumakoff lived and worked primarily in Paris. He exhibited at salon shows in Paris, while also sending his works to exhibitions at the St. Petersburg Academy of the Arts. Tchoumakoff was a fairly popular artist in the aristocratic circles of France and Russia. His works were purchased by, for example, the government of France and Czar Aleksander II. In 1866 the czar bestowed the Order of St. Anna III class on Tchoumakoff for the painting “The Saviour and the Rich Man”, which he had purchased. Tchoumakoff worked in different techniques and genres: historical, genre scenes from life, portraits. Beginning in 1870 the artist primarily painted “little heads” (“golovki”), which bought Tchoumakoff fame as the “Russian Greuze” (French artist J.-B. Greuze, 1725-1805). Tchoumakoff’s works can be found in the State Russian Museum, Moscow’s Tretyakov Gallery, and in many other Russian and European museums as well as private collections.
