Василий Яковлевич Грачёв (1831 -1905) St. Petersburg, Russia.
The artist was the main competitor to E. Lanceray.
He stopped modelling after E. Lanceray's death in 1886.
Both of them together made a realy great input to the Russian sculptural art by competing and inspiring each other during the period of 1873 - 1886.
Used to cast all his works at Woerffel foundry, but there are five other models known marked NIKOLAEV..
