ТЕОДОРА КРАРУП

1860 - 1941

ПОРТРЕТ РАСПУТИНА 1916

ХОЛСТ, МАСЛО

99.38 Х 69.38

ТЕОДОРА КРАРУП БЫЛА ВХОЖА ВО ДВОРЕЦ И ИМЕЛА ДОСТУП К ИМПЕРАТОРСКОЙ СЕМЬЕ РОМАНОВЫХ В РОССИИ. ОНА НАПИСАЛА МНОГО ПОРТРЕТОВ ПО ЗАКАЗАМ, БОЛЬШИНСТВО ИЗ КОТОРЫХ БЫЛИ ПОТЕРЯНЫ ВО ВРЕМЯ БОЛЬШЕВИСТСКОЙ РЕВОЛЮЦИИ. ПОСЛЕ РЕВОЛЮЦИИ ХУДОЖНИЦА ОСТАЛАСЬ В РОССИИ, ГДЕ ПРОДОЛЖАЛА ПИСАТЬ КАРТИНЫ И ПРЕПОДАВАТЬ. В КОНЕЧНОМ ИТОГЕ ОНА ПОКИНУЛА РОССИЮ В 1938 ГОДУ, КОГДА СТОЛКНУЛАСЬ С ВОПРОСОМ О ПРИНЯТИИ СОВЕТСКОГО ГРАЖДАНСТВА. ОНА РЕШИЛА УНИЧТОЖИТЬ СВОИ КАРТИНЫ И ВЕРНУТЬСЯ В РОДНУЮ ДАНИЮ, ЧТОБЫ ЧАСТИЧНО ВОССТАНОВИТЬ ИЗОБРАЖЕНИЯ РОМАНОВЫХ, А ТАКЖЕ РАСПУТИНА, ЧЕЛОВЕКА, КОТОРОГО ОНА ЗНАЛА СО ВРЕМЁН СВОЕГО ПРЕБЫВАНИЯ ВО ДВОРЦЕ. К СЧАСТЬЮ ДЛЯ ИСТОРИИ, НЕСКОЛЬКО ПОРТРЕТОВ ЕЁ РАБОТЫ СОХРАНИЛСЬ ДО НАШИХ ДНЕЙ.

ТЕОДОРА КРАРУП РОДИЛАСЬ В ДАНИИ В 1860 ГОДУ И УЖЕ К 1885 ГОДУ ОНА ПРОШЛА ПОЛНУЮ ПОДГОТОВКУ, НЕОБХОДИМУЮ, ЧТОБЫ СТАТЬ ХУДОЖНИКОМ-ПОРТРЕТИСТОМ И СКУЛЬПТОРОМ. В 1888 ГОДУ ОНА ЕДЕТ В БЕРЛИН, ГДЕ ПРОДОЛЖАЕТ ИНТЕНСИВНОЕ ОБУЧЕНИЕ ЖИВОПИСИ, А В 1890 ГОДУ ПОСТУПАЕТ В АКАДЕМИЮ ДЖУЛИАНА В ПАРИЖЕ. СЛЕДУЯ СВОЕМУ ЖЕЛАНИЮ ПУТЕШЕСТВОВАТЬ, ОНА В 1896 ГОДУ ПРИБЫВАЕТ В РОССИЮ, ГДЕ ЗНАКОМИТСЯ С МАРИЕЙ ФЕДОРОВНОЙ, ВДОВОЙ РОССИЙСКОГО ИМПЕРАТОРА АЛЕКСАНДРА III И МАТЕРЬЮ ЦАРСТВУЮЩЕГО ИМПЕРАТОРА НИКОЛАЯ II, КОТОРАЯ БЫЛА РОДОМ ИЗ ДАНИИ - РОДНОЙ СТРАНЫ ТЕОДОРЫ КРАРУП. МАРИЯ ФЁДОРОВНА ТУТ ЖЕ ЗАКАЗЫВАЕТ ТЕОДОРЕ ПОРТРЕТ СВОЕГО ПОКОЙНОГО МУЖА. ЭТА ВСТРЕЧА ПРОЛОЖИЛА ХУДОЖНИЦА ПУТЬ КО ДВОРУ, ГДЕ ОНА ПИСАЛА ПОРТРЕТЫ ИМПЕРАТОРСКОЙ СЕМЬИ РОМАНОВЫХ ВПЛОТЬ ДО ИХ КОНЧИНЫ В 1918 ГОДУ ОТ РУК БОЛЬШЕВИКОВ.

ОСОБЕННО КРАРУП ПОЛЮБИЛА СТОЛЬ ОКЛЕВЕТАННОГО ИСТОРИЕЙ ГРИГОРИЯ ЕФИМОВИЧА РАСПУТИНА. СВЯТОЙ ЧЕЛОВЕК ПРОСТОГО ПРОИСХОЖДЕНИЯ ИЗ СИБИРИ, РАСПУТИН ОБЛАДАЛ СПОСОБНОСТЬЮ ОСТАНОВЛИВАТЬ СМЕРТОНОСНЫЕ ПРИСТУПЫ КРОВОТЕЧЕНИЯ У ЦЕСАРЕВИЧА АЛЕКСЕЯ, ВЫЗВАННЫЕ ЕГО ГЕМОФИЛИЕЙ, И ТЕМ САМЫМ ЗАВОЕВАЛ ДОВЕРИЕ И ЛЮБОВЬ У ИМПЕРАТРИЦЫ АЛЕКСАНДРЫ. КРАРУП СТАЛА ОДНИМ ИЗ МНОГОЧИСЛЕННЫХ СВИДЕТЕЛЕЙ ИСЦЕЛЕНИЙ, НАСТУПАВШИХ БЛАГОДАРЯ РАСПУТИНУ. НО В ТО ВРЕМЯ КАК ИМПЕРАТРИЦА СЧИТАЕТ РАСПУТИНА СВЯТЫМ ЧЕЛОВЕКОМ, ПОСЛАННЫМ ИМ БОГОМ, ЕГО МНОГОЧИСЛЕННЫЕ ВРАГИ ПРИ ДВОРЕ, НЕДОВОЛЬНЫЕ ЦАРСКИМИ УКАЗАМИ, ПЫТАЮТСЯ СДЕЛАТЬ ИЗ НЕГО КОЗЛА ОТПУЩЕНИЯ. ПОПЫТКИ РАСПУТИНА РАСПРОСТРАНИТЬ СВОЁ ВЛИЯНИЕ НА ВСЮ ИМПЕРАТОРСКУЮ СЕМЬЮ ПОЛУЧАЮТ ОТПОР, ХОТЯ И ПРИЗНАЁТСЯ ЕГО ЗАСЛУГА В СПАСЕНИИ ЖИЗНИ ФРЕЙЛИНЫ АННЫ ВЫРУБОВОЙ, КОТОРАЯ ПОЛУЧИЛА СЕРЬЕЗНЫЕ ТРАВМЫ ПРИ АВАРИИ ПОЕЗДА.

В "ПОРТРЕТЕ РАСПУТИНА", НАПИСАННОМ В ГОД ЕГО СМЕРТИ (1916), КРАРУП ИЗОБРАЖАЕТ ЕГО КАК ВЫЗЫВАЮЩЕГО РАСПОЛОЖЕНИЕ, С ЛЁГКОЙ УЛЫБКОЙ НА ЛИЦЕ, С ПРИЯТНЫМИ ГЛАЗАМИ, ОБЛАЧЁННОГО В БЕЛУЮ РУБАХУ ЧЕЛОВЕКА, В ПРОТИВОВЕС ФОТОГРАФИЯМ СОВРЕМЕННИКОВ, ГДЕ ПРОТИВОРЕЧИВЫЙ СТАРЕЦ ПРЕДСТАЁТ С МРАЧНЫМ, БЕСПОКОЙНЫМ ЛИЦОМ И В ТЁМНОЙ ОДЕЖДЕ. В ТО ВРЕМЯ КАК ФОТОГРАФИИ ПОКАЗЫВАЮТ РАСПУТИНА С ПОЧТИ ВОИНСТВЕННО ПОДНЯТЫМИ РУКАМИ, КРАРУП АКЦЕНТИРУЕТ ВНИМАНИЕ НА РУКАХ СПОКОЙНО СЛОЖЕННЫХ НА КОЛЕНЯХ.

ОСНОВЫВАЯСЬ НА ДАТЕ НАПИСАНИЯ ЭТОЙ КАРТИНЫ, МОЖНО ПРИЙТИ К ВЫВОДУ, ЧТО КРАРУП, ВПОЛНЕ ВОЗМОЖНО, НАПИСАЛА ПОСЛЕДНИЙ ПРИЖИЗНЕННЫЙ ПОРТРЕТ СТАРЦА. В ДЕКАБРЕ ТОГО ЖЕ ГОДА ЗАГОВОР ВО ГЛАВЕ С КНЯЗЕМ ФЕЛИКСОМ ЮСУПОВЫМ ПОЛОЖИЛ КОНЕЦ ЖИЗНИ РАСПУТИНА, ЕГО ТЕЛО ТАК И НЕ БЫЛО НАЙДЕНО В ЛЕДЯНОЙ НЕВЕ. ОБСТОЯТЕЛЬСТВА ЕГО СМЕРТИ ВЫЗЫВАЛИ СПОРЫ У НЕСКОЛЬКИХ ПОКОЛЕНИЙ, НО НЕТ НИКАКИХ СОМНЕНИЙ В ТОМ, ЧТО ЕГО ЧРЕЗМЕРНОЕ ВЛИЯНИЕ НА ИМПЕРАТОРСКУЮ СЕМЬЮ И ПОСЛУЖИЛО ПРИЧИНОЙ ЕГО СМЕРТИ.

ТЕОДОРА КРАРУП ВЫЖИЛА В РЕВОЛЮЦИЮ И ДАЖЕ ВЫСТАВЛЯЛА НЕКОТОРЫЕ СВОИ РАБОТЫ НА ПЕРВОЙ ГОСУДАРСТВЕННОЙ БЕСПЛАТНОЙ ВЫСТАВКЕ В 1919 ГОДУ. ОНА ВЕЛА ТИХУЮ ЖИЗНЬ И СМОГЛА ПРЕПОДАВАТЬ НА ПОДГОТОВИТЕЛЬНЫХ КУРСАХ АКАДЕМИИ ХУДОЖЕСТВ В САНКТ-ПЕТЕРБУРГЕ В ТЕЧЕНИЕ 13 ЛЕТ ДО 1934 ГОДА. НО В 1938 ГОДУ ЕЙ ПРИШЛОСЬ РЕШАТЬ ВОПРОС: ИЛИ ПРИНЯТЬ СОВЕТСКОЕ ГРАЖДАНСТВО, ИЛИ ПОКИНУТЬ СТАЛИНСКУЮ РОССИЮ. ОНА УЕХАЛА В СВОЮ РОДНУЮ ДАНИЮ, ЗАХВАТИВ С СОБОЙ ЛИШЬ НЕСКОЛЬКО КАРТИН И УНИЧТОЖИВ ОСТАЛЬНЫЕ. ОНА ТАКЖЕ ВЗЯЛА ОБЕЩАНИЕ С СЕМЬИ РАСПУТИНА РАССКАЗАТЬ МИРУ О ДРУГОМ РАСПУТИНЕ, СВЯТОМ ЧЕЛОВЕКЕ, ПРИНОСИВШЕМ УТЕШЕНИЕ ИМПЕРАТОРСКОЙ СЕМЬЕ. ТЕОДОРА КРАРУП УМЕРЛА ВСЕГО ЛИШЬ НЕСКОЛЬКО ЛЕТ СПУСТЯ ПОСЛЕ ОТЪЕЗДА, В 1941 ГОДУ, ПРОВЕДЯ ОСТАВШИЕСЯ ПЕРЕД СМЕРТЬЮ ГОДЫ В РАЗМЫШЛЕНИЯХ О СВОЕМ ОБЩЕНИИ С РОМАНОВЫМИ И РАСПУТИНЫМ.

ПОРТРЕТ РАСПУТИНА ЯВЛЯЕТСЯ РЕДКИМ ПРИМЕРОМ РАБОТЫ СДЕЛАННОЙ С НАТУРЫ, ХУДОЖНИЦЕЙ, ХОРОШО ЕГО ЗНАВШЕЙ, ЖЕНЩИНОЙ ОГРОМНОГО ТАЛАНТА, ЦЕНИМОЙ ИМПЕРАТОРСКОЙ СЕМЬЁЙ.

ОЦЕНОЧНАЯ СТОИМОСТЬ: 200- 300 ТЫС. ДОЛЛАРОВ

THEODORA KRARUP (Russian, 1860-1941)
Portrait of Rasputin, 1916
Oil on canvas
39-3/4 x 27-3/4 inches (101.0 x 70.5 cm)
Signed and dated top right: Th. Krarup 1916

Theodora Krarup had extraordinary access to the Imperial Romanov family of Russia and completed many portrait commissions, most of which have been lost to history due to the chaos of the Bolshevik Revolution. She remained in post-Revolutionary Russia and continued to paint and teach, then ultimately fled in 1938 when authorities insisted she adopt Soviet citizenship. She decided to destroy her paintings and return to her native Denmark, in part to rehabilitate the Romanov image and that of Rasputin as well, whom she knew from her time at court. It is fortunate for history that at least a select few of her portraits survive today.

Theodora Krarup was born in Denmark in 1860 and by 1885 was a trained portraiture artist and sculptor. She made her way to Berlin in 1888 for intense study there and in 1890 entered the Académie Julian in Paris. She had an intense desire to travel the world, and after 1896 journeyed to Russia and made fast friends with Maria Fedorovna, widow of Russian emperor Alexander III, mother of the reigning emperor, Nicholas II, and importantly, the former Empress Dagmar of Denmark, Krarup's native country. Fedorovna immediately put her to work on a portrait of her late husband. This association led her to mix with the rest of the Romanov family, becoming an Artist to the Court and completing portraits of the Imperial family until their demise in 1917 at the hands of the Bolsheviks.

Krarup was particularly fond of the historically much-maligned Grigori Efimovich Rasputin. A holy man from Siberia and from humble beginnings, Rasputin was a favorite of the Empress Alexandra, Fedorovna's daughter-in-law, an association due almost entirely to his apparent ability to halt the Tsarevich Alexis' deadly episodes of bleeding caused by his hemophilia. There were many witnesses to Rasputin's powers of healing, including the artist Krarup. But while the Empress believed the holy man had been sent by God, Rasputin quickly made enemies within the Court and was used as a scapegoat by those who would oppose the Tsar's appointments. As Rasputin tried to expand his circle of influence throughout the Imperial family he was mostly rebuffed, although he was credited with saving the life of the Tsarina's friend, Anya Vyrubova, who was severely injured in a train accident.

In Krarup's portrait of Rasputin dated 1916, the year of his death, she depicts him in a pleasant, seated pose with a slight smile, pleasant eyes and clad in a white robe, not at all like the contemporary photographs of the controversial holy man with his dark, brooding face and clothing. While photographs show Rasputin in almost militaristic poses with his hands, here Krarup shows his hands calmly folded in his lap.

Based on the date of this picture, Krarup may very well have completed the last portrait of the man done from life. In December of that year, a conspiracy led by Prince Felix Yussupov would end Rasputin's life, his body found in the icy Neva River. The details of his death have been in dispute for generations, but there is no doubt that his inordinate influence over the Imperial family led to his death.

Theodora Krarup would survive the Revolution, and actually displayed some of her work in the first State free exhibition in 1919. She maintained a low profile and was able to teach at the preparatory art academy in Saint Petersburg for 13 years until 1934. In 1938 she was confronted with the choice of accepting Soviet citizenship or fleeing Stalinist Russia. She left Russia for her native Denmark, taking only a few paintings with her and destroying the rest. She also took with her a promise to the family of Rasputin to tell the world of a different Rasputin, the holy man who comforted the Imperial family. She died just a few years later in 1941, reflecting on her experiences with the Romanovs and Rasputin.

This portrait is a rare example of Rasputin done from life by an artist who knew him well, a woman of extraordinary talent who was a favorite of the Imperial family.

Theodora Krarup was born in Scheelborg in 1862 and studied in Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris and Helsinki, before fulfilling a lifelong ambition to visit Russia, at the age of 34, where she remained for forty two years. Krarup lived in St. Petersburg, where she was asked by the, dowager Maria Feodorovna to paint the late Alexander III from pictures. She was then commissioned to paint further Imperial portraits from life.

Krarup became a friend of Rasputin and painted a total of twelve portriats of him, the last of which was completed five days before his death. According to her memoires, Rasputin entrusted his own memoires, photograph album and letters to her, but these along with her own remaining works, she had to destroy the day before her deportation in 1938. However, she attempted to refute the scandalous reputation of Rasputin in her own memoires, dictated to and published by : Henning Kehler and William Haste.

I'm not quite sure, but I think the Soviet authorities tore down Rasputin's house (in 1980) and another was built in its place. :-\

I found this:

...притока паломников (особенно иностранцев) в эти места, и в 1980 году они приказали снести двухэтажный дом Распутна».

...… the inflow of pilgrims (especially foreigners) and on that place, in 1980, they' destroyed' home of Rasputin.

That's interesting.  Does anyone have more info on the history of Rasputin's father?  Did he survive his son, if so what happened to him after  the Revolution?

Anything on Rasputin's mother, was she living when this photo was taken?

Rasputin's father died during war, I can't remember what year, 1914/5?

Rasputin had problems with father when he (Rasputin) was drunk, but cried a lot when his father died.
