Alexei Venetsianov is a master of the everyday life genre and created an independent art movement (“Venetsianov school”). He worked for the postal and then for the forestry departments. Venetsianov learned painting by himself: he followed lessons of Vladimir Boroviskovsky and copied paintings from the Hermitage. The portrait of Kirill Golovachevsky with pupils granted Venetsianov the title of academician in 1811.

Kirill Golovachevsky (1735–1823) was a history painter, a portraitist and headmaster of the Imperial Academy of Arts.
