Portrait of Alexandra Danilovna Tretyakova. 1878
106.5 х 89 Oil on canvas

Alexandra Danilovna Tretyakova (1812-1899), née Borisova, was the mother of P.M. Tretyakov. On the portrait commissioned by Pavel Mikhailovich to I.Y. Repin, she is 66 years old. This is an elderly woman who has been through a lot and yet has not lost her backbone. She became a widow at the age of 38 and, at the request of her sons Pavel and Sergei, remained the “mistress of the business”, which she left 9 years later, handing it over to her sons in 1859. In other words, it was a person who was able not only to “keep in check” a large family, but also to manage the family capital. She did not remarry and lived with her eldest son, Pavel, until his marriage. Then Alexandra Danilovna moved from Tolmachi to a house on Ilyinsky Lane, not far from the shop where the Tretyakovs carried on their trade. Pavel Mikhailovich visited her daily on his way to the shop, for they were bound by a close spiritual kinship. She retained her sharp mind until a very old age, travelled with her adult daughters abroad and was aware of all family affairs.
