Portrait of Yevdokhia Dmitrievna Surina, 1829

Ivan Vasilievich Tarkhanov (1780-1848) was a Russian painter active during the nineteenth century. He was known for his provincial portraiture, with examples of his work appearing in a joint 2006 Hermitage Museum and Kaliningrad State Art Gallery exhibition on early 19th century portrait art.[1] Two of his portraits, dated 1831, are currently held in the Yaroslavl Art Museum in Yaroslavl. The inscriptions on the back of both works, however, identify him as a registering clerk and resident of Uglich. Nothing further is known about his life. A further collection of his paintings may be found at the Uglich Museum-Preserve.
