He painted 35 pictures in total. The publishing commission of the work of The Knight in the Panther's Skin chose 27 illustrations to be included in the publication. The painter refused to take payment for the works, so impressed was he by the poem itself. Instead, he gifted the works to the Georgian people.

Mihály Zichy was a distinguished representative of Hungarian romantic painting. He was born in 1827 in Hungary, after graduating from university; he studied at the Academy of Arts in Vienna. From 1847, Zichy was invited to Russia and became an artist of Russia’s Royal Court, paining portraits of four of Russia’s emperors.

From 1850 onwards, he worked as a retoucher, but he also did pencil drawings, water colours and portraits in oil. His erotic drawings have a particular warm intensity in which both members of the couple seem equal partners.
