Catalogues listing paintings from the Collection of the Russian Museum previously counted the portrait as a work of an unknown artist; however, already in the 1980s credible researchers stated that there was no doubt that the portrait was created by Ivan Nikitin, and the person depicted is the painter Andrei Matveyev. Nikitin’s authorship was confirmed by the Attribution Council of the Russian Museum in 2015. The portrait was painted before August 8, 1732, the day when Nikitin was arrested and committed to the Peter and Paul Fortress.
