Prince Grigory Grigorievich Gagarin was born Saint-Petersburg, Russia (11 May 1810) and died in Châtellerault, France (30 January 1893). He was a Russian painter, Major General and administrator.
Gagarin travelled to the Caucasus (1839-1840) following his friend Mikhail Lermontov. Gagarin's Caucasian period was probably the most prolific period of his artistic career. He drew numerous drawings and watercolours depicting battle scenes, Caucasian warriors and Russian soldiers as well as genre scenes of the life of people of the Caucasus.
These works were later reproduced as colour lithographs in the album series "Le Caucase Pittoresque", (Paris, 1847-1859) and Scènes, paysages, mœurs et costumes du Caucase (Paris, 1845-1846).
