    Original and rare subject for this artist of whom we mainly know aristocratic portraits.

    Niece of miniaturist Georges Sanders, Christina Robertson (née Sanders) was born in Scotland in 1796. Little is known about her childhood. She participated in the annual exhibitions of the Royal Academy in London and Edinburgh from 1823 to 1844. Hailed by the critics, she made many portraits frequently used to illustrate the newspapers of the time. In the 1830s, during stays in Paris, she had the opportunity to work for several Russian personalities. In 1839, her popularity among the Russian nobility allowed her to exhibit her works at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, where she went. She became a member of the Academy of St. Petersburg in 1841. She quickly gained favor in court circles and painted the portraits of many members of the imperial family and the Russian aristocracy.
    She returned to live in Saint Petersburg in 1847, she died there in 1854.
    His works can be found in the Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow and the Hermitage Museum, among others.
