"The Foundling Hospital in Moscow" by Fedor Alekseev, 1800

Fedor Yakovlevich Alekseev (Russian: Фёдор Яковлевич Алексеев) (c. 1753 – November 23, 1824) was an early Russian painter of landscape art.

After training in the Saint Petersburg Imperial Academy of Arts, he spent three years in Venice studying the works of famous French and Italian landscape painters.

Returning to Saint Petersburg to work, his popularity grew over time. In 1800, Emperor Paul of Russia commissioned a series of paintings of Moscow from him.
