Portrait of Savva Mamontov. 1896

Savva Ivanovich Mamontov was a leading Moscow industrialist, patron, and founder of the Abramtsevo Art Circle.
The picture was commissioned by the Yaroslavl Railway Board for the Yaroslavl Station building in Moscow and is one of Zorn's finest portraits painted during his Paris period. The masterly execution and subtle psychological treatment of the sitter's image and mood testify to the artist's genuine interest in his model.
