ZICHY Mihaly (b. 1827, Zala, d. 1906, St. Petersburg) Nationality : Hungarian

Hungarian painter, graphic artist. He was a significant representative of Hungarian romantic painting. During his law studies in Pest from 1842, he attended Jakab Marastoni's school as well. In Vienna he was Waldmuller's pupil in 1844. Life Boat, his first major work, comes from this time. On Waldmuller's recommendation, he became an art teacher in St. Petersburg. He swore allegiance to freedom by painting the portrait of Lajos Batthany, the first Hungarian prime minister, in 1849. From 1850 onwards, he worked as a retoucher, but he also did pencil drawings, watercolours and portraits in oil. The series on the Gatsina hunting ordered by the Russian tsar raised him to a court artist.
