Footnotes

  • Georg Christoph Grooth became a prominent portraitist at the Imperial Russian Court during the years 1741-49. There he quickly became a favourite of the Tsaritsa Elisabeth Petrovna, for whom he executed the designs for her coronation in 1741. He was one of many German artists whose reputations were established in Russia during the 1740s. Known as 'Little Grooth' due to his diminutive stature, he painted more than 30 portraits of members of the Imperial family, which can now be found in various State and private collections in Russia.
