Brief Biography-Lev Feliksovich Lagorio was a marine artist who also painted landscapes and battle scenes. He was born in Feodosia, the son of a Genoese merchant. Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky was his first formal tutor before he entered the Imperial Academy of Arts in 1842. Maxim Vorobiev, Alexander Sauerweid and Bogdon Willewalde were three of his teachers there. In 1853, he received a stipend which allowed him to go to Paris and Rome for six years. He was a professor by 1860, and he travelled to the Caucasus between 1861 and 1864, becoming involved in the war and painting several battle scenes for which he received the Order of Saint Anna. In 1885, Alexander III commissioned him to paint scenes from the Russo-Turkish war. In 1890, he was a founder member of the Saint Petersburg Society of Artists and became a member of the Imperial Academy of Arts the same year.
