Ostrovsky Grigory Silovich. 1756-1814
Portrait-painter. Icon-painter. Petty bourgeois from Veliky Ustyug, son of a priest.
Painted murals in some of the churches in Veliky Ustyug, but never belonged to the local icon-painters guild. In 1770-ies - 1780-ies was employed as a portrait-painter at the aristocratic Cherevins’ estate Neronovo in Soligalich district.
Biographical data is based on the V.M.Sorokaty’s hypothesis. He identifies G.S.Ostrovsky, the icon-painter from Ustyug, with portrait-painter G.Ostrovsky from Soligalich. (Sorokaty V.M. Voprosy biografii G.Ostrovskogo i iskusstvo portreta v Velikom Ustyuge XVIII c.// Pamyatniki Kul’tury: Novye otkrytiya. 1989. L.1990. P. 256-299).
