"Black Sea Cossack from Sevastopol 1854 and 1855". Large Russian patinated bronze sculpture depicting a Russian soldier from the Crimean War. Signed and dated I. Kovshenkov 1856 (in Cyrillic). Furthermore inscribed with the title in Cyrillic. H. 39 cm.

Ivan Fedorovich Kovshenkov was related to the well-known bronze engraver Fedor Kovshenkov, who influenced the boy's talent. Ivan assisted his father early on at the workshop and from 1835 he attended drawing classes at the Academy of Fine Arts. Soon he also studied in P. K. Klodt's workshop, assisted him in creating monumental sculptures and graduated from the Arts Academy in 1852. He lived in St. Petersburg and worked as a genre sculptor making, among other works, portraits of military officers, historical and ethnographic people types and compositions depicting military history. He participated in several exhibitions, e.g. in London, and today he is represented at, among other places, the State Tretyakov Gallery and the State Hermitage Museum.

The Crimean War 1853-1856 was a military conflict between Russia and the Ottoman Empire, France, Great Britain and Sardinia.

Provenance: Acquired by the present Danish owner from another Dane, who previously bought the sculpture in an antique shop in the 1990s in Murcia, Spain.
