Biography

Prince Trubetskoy, a close friend of Rembrandt Bugatti and his family, as well of famous Russian writer Leo Tolstoy, was an impressionist who worked in Russia, England, Italy and the USA. He was a self-taught artist influenced mainly by Giuseppe Grandi. His most noted works concentrated on portraits of the “Belle Epoche” of society. As a convinced vegetarian he also created several animal sculptures. One of his well known citations was: “As I cannot kill, I cannot authorize others to kill. Do you see? If you are buying from a butcher you are authorizing him to kill – to kill helpless creatures which neither you nor I could kill ourselves.”
