Nicholas V. Haritonoff was born in the Russian countryside in 1880.  At the age of twelve, he moved to St. Petersburg.  There, Haritonoff studied at the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg and became one of Russia's most renowned artists.   He painted a portrait of the Czar and another of the Czar's wife and child that hung in the Czar's palace in St. Petersburg.   In 1920 he immigrated to the United States and became an American citizen.  He worked with Nicholai Fechin, another Imperial Academy alum, in NY.  In 1926 he debuted at the National Academy of Design.  His works still hang in the Russian Art Museum and the Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg as well as in the Lauren Rogers Museum in Mississippi.   He is well listed in the art reference books including "Index of Artist" by Mallet and "Who's Who in American Art" by Peter Falk.
