An incredible "hunting trophy": in the period of four years we were able to find two identical portraits of very well known Polish aristocrat and (Russo-Polish) statesman Prince Franciszek Ksavery (in Russia - Francisk-Ksawery) Drucki-Lubecki (1779-1846). The first discovery (see our web 28854) was a copy after (housed in Warsaw National Museum and thought to be the only existing one) 1825 portrait (painted with oils on canvas) by female artist Marie Prevot-Gomion (see our image nr.9; here, the artist's surname is presented erroneously, i.e. Gouvier Prevot).
Marie Prevot-Gomion was born in Kaluga (Russia) into French family Gomion. She worked in St. Petersburg between the years 1815 and 1824. There she organized auctions of her own portrait paintings (1818) and participated in several exhibitions of Imperial Academy of Fine Arts in the early 1820s. In 1820 she obtained an academic rank of "naznachenny" ("appointed") artist for seven of her exhibited portraits. In 1824 she came to Warsaw, where she possibly married (and took the name of) her husband Prevot (see our images nr.10-12). In the next few years following her arrival to Warsaw (Warsaw Museum dates their replicas 1825) she portrayed Prince Drucki-Lubecki, hence these two replicas - "Warsaw" and ours.
The sitter was born to Franciszek Drucki-Lubecki and Genowefa Olizar of the Rurukid family of Princes Drucki-Lubecki in St. Petersburg on the 28th of December 1778. After graduating from the infantry cadet school he joined the Russian military in 1794 and remained in service until 1800. He served under the command of Alexander Suvorov, participating in the latter's campaigns in Italy and Switzerland. Later, he became the Marshal of Nobility of Grodno Gubernia. From 1813 to 1815 he was a member of the High Provisional Council (Rada Najwyzsza Tymczasowa) of the Duchy of Warsaw. He supported the peaceful resolution of the conflict with the Russian Empire, as backed Alexander I of Russia, whom he thought was liberal enough to support extended Polish autonomy. In 1816 he became the Governor of Grodno Gubernia and a member of the Commission for settling the financial accounts between Kingdom of Poland and the Russian Empire. He organized a campaign for the introduction of foreign investors, professionals and workers into Poland. In 1816, as a governor, he issued a set of conditions for the settlement of "useful foreigns" in the Congress of Kingdom of Poland. City of Lodz was one that greatly benefited from his policies, becoming an important textile center.
