From 1839 to 1845 he studied at the Nikolayev Engineering Institute, where he made friends with his fellow student Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and then Trutovsky studied at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts (1845–1849). In 1860 he became an academician.His artistic heritage includes numerous genre screens on Ukrainian themes. He was interested in ethnography and depicted colorful Ukrainian folk customs, not shying away from "a dash of good humour". Like Taras Shevchenko, Ukraine's foremost bard, Trutovsky described the miserable and hopeless life of the peasant.Trutovsky took part in publishing Lev Zhemchuzhnikov's album, Picturesque Ukraine, and illustrated the poems and biography of Shevchenko.
