This portrait was obviously painted in the last years of sitter's life. The latter was retired brigadier (lowest general's rank in 18th-century Russian Army) Nikolai Andreevich Sumarokov. According to S. V. Volkov (see our image nr.7 with clips from his dictionary of generals of the Russian Empire), Nikolai Andreevich Sumarokov was born in 1746 as a son of captain Andrei Vasilevich Sumarokov. He began his military service in 1769; in 1786 was promoted to brigadier. From that time on he was active in the state civil service. In 1796 he retired and died fourteen years later, in 1810. According to Volkov, he had four sons. This data is contradicting the information available from Russian genealogical sources (see image nr.8), which imply that, first of all, he was born in 1754 and, second of all, that he had one daughter only, Praskovia Nikolaevna Sumarokova (married Tolstaya, then Krasilnikova; died 1852) from his marriage to Princess Alexandra Sergeevna Dolgorukova (1767-1797).
However, it is possible that both of the aforementioned sources refer to two different men, who, however, both died in the same year 1810…
Volkov adds also that brigadier Sumarokov had a brother, poruchik (second lieutenant) of Guards, Alexei Sumarokov.
