Portraits of royal personalities, statesmen and high-ranking military officers, are the centre of the life of the English painter George Dawe. Born on February 8, 1781 in London, George Dawe is one of the most important portrait painters of his time. His artistic talent does not come by chance. Already his father Philip Dawe was an artist, mezzotint engraver and political caricaturist. Two of his five siblings were also artists.

The artistic talent and flair of George Dawe became apparent at the young age of 13. He made copperplate engravings of the queens Elisabeth and Mary after the paintings of John Graham. In 1803 the London-born painter received the coveted prize of the Royal Academy of Arts in London for his first painting, "Achilles at the Death of Patroclus". Only one year later followed the painting "Noemie and her two daughters-in-law". However, George Dawe did not achieve popularity and greater fame until 1809 with the portrait of Thomas Hope's wife. But man was not only the focus of his paintings. George Dawe also worked intensively on anatomy to gain a better understanding of the human form. Thus, through his studies, he also carried out human preparations in his own home. Dawe also took part in operations to expand his knowledge of the human body.

In 1818 he portrayed several of the statesmen, princes and diplomats present at the Aachen Congress. His portraits enjoyed great popularity and were appreciated by statesmen throughout Europe. George Dawe travelled through Europe in the wake of Edward Augustus, the Duke of Kent and Strathearn. During this trip, the Russian Emperor Alexander I. also became aware of the London painter. He was appointed court painter shortly afterwards, which is why Dawe moved his centre of life to St Petersburg. During his time in Russia, the Englishman portrayed over 300 Russian generals who successfully fought against Napoleon. These portraits were made especially for the military gallery in the Winter Palace. Through the exhibition, the portraits of the successful generals, covered with medals and posing in fine, noble uniforms, became far better known in Russia than in his home country. Alexander Pushkin also dedicated praising words to the English painter. In artist circles, however, George Dawe also attracted criticism during his lifetime, for he was primarily interested in financial success and advertised his works very directly.

In the spring of 1829 George Dawe returned to his homeland following a severe cold with breathing problems. However, his condition did not improve as hoped and so George Dawe died on 15 October 1829 in the house of his brother-in-law, the famous engraver Thomas Wright. Numerous well-known artists and officials of the Russian embassy attended his funeral. Dawe was buried in the crypt of St. Paul's Cathedral. © Meisterdrucke
