Fedor Alekseev

Fedor Yakovlevich Alekseev (c. 1753 – November 23, 1824) was an early Russian landscape painter.

After training in the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, he spent three years in Venice studying the works of famous French and Italian landscape painters.

Returning to St. Petersburg to work, his popularity grew over time. In 1800 Emperor Paul of Russia commissioned a series of paintings of Moscow from him.
