Elena Baranoff studied miniature painting at Palekh Art School, Russia specialising in egg tempera technique. Her work has been seen in the UK at the exhibitions of the Royal Society of Miniature Painters (1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2005, 2008) and in exhibitions of miniatures in Europe and the USA, where she lives and works.

Baranoff was inspired to paint Lord Poltimore, now Chairman of Sotheby’s UK, after attending an auction of Russian fine art. She wanted to capture his ‘elegance and ability to engage the audience’ through gesture and gaze.
