Alexei Alexeivich Harlamoff
Alexei Alexeievich Harlamoff (or Alexej Harlamoff - Alexej Charlamoff) (1840–1925) was a Russian painter.
Harlamoff paintings are signed "Harlamoff", which may be a translation he learned while studying in Paris. This does not translate into the Russian language from English. One transliteration into English would be "Aleksei Alekseevich Kharlamov". Alexei Harlamoff was born into a family of serfs on 18 October in the village of Dyachevka near Saratov on the river Volga. In 1850 Harlamoff’s parents win their freedom. Harlamoff becomes a guest student in 1854 at the Imperial Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg. Three years later he was awarded a second class silver medal for a drawing. In 1862 Harlamoff was awarded a second class silver medal for a sketch, and he is enrolled with the history painter Alexei T. Markov.
