LEBEDEV Mikhail Ivanovich (1811-1837) Nationality : Russian

Mikhail Ivanovich Lebedev was born in Derpt (now Tartu), into the family of a serf. In the 1820s, serfdom was abolished in that part of the Russian Empire (now the independent state of Estonia) and young Mikhail even got the opportunity to study in the Derpt gymnasium; his success in drawing attracted the attention of the Count P.A. Palen, who promoted the young man to the St. Petersburg Academy with an Imperial scholarship (1829-1833). In the Academy, Lebedev studied in the class of Maxim Vorobiov. In 1833, he got the major gold medal for the painting View of Ladoga.
