Russian artist’spaintings at gallery
This Sunday (May 4) Baker Mamonova Gallery in St Leonards will be holding the first exhibition of Prince Rostislav Romanoff, a 28-year-old painter from the Russian Imperial family.
The artist lives in East Sussex and is the first Romanov to carve his name as a full-time artist.
Rostislav Romanoff was born in 1985 in the USA. He belongs to the House of Romanoff as a male line descendant of the Grand Duke Michael Nikolaevich of Russia, the youngest son of Emperor Nicholas I.
He is also the great-grandson of Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna of Russia, the sister of the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II.
At the age of five Rostislav moved to the UK with his parents and has lived in Sussex most of his life.
A dedicated landscape painter, he studied painting in Moscow and held exhibitions there, while also working as a creative consultant.
His paintings include views of Camber Sands, Hastings beach and landscapes of South Africa.
The exhibition starts on Sunday and runs until Sunday, May 18.
Baker Mamonova Gallery is based in Norman Road.
