Yevgeny Yevgenyevich Lansere (1875-1946) was a Russian artist, born near St. Petersburg into a family of prominent Russian artists, architects, and composers. In addition to his work in painting and sculpture, Lansere illustrated the Caucasian novellas of Leo Tolstoy, and his later interest in Asian art was sparked by trips he took to Japan and Turkey in the 1920s.

This 10” tall bronze statue was listed in the inventory of the Deanery taken in 1917, along with numerous other figurines. It is the only surviving statue from a group of at least three larger bronzes by Lansere, including the famous work known as ‘Cossack After the Battle.’ The statue stood with other bronzes first in the entrance hall and later in the Deanery’s large sitting room, the Dorothy Vernon Room.
