In 1835, Goranovic graduated from the Nizhyn Lyceum. At the Academy of fine arts was a student of K. P. Briullov. Devoting himself to watercolour painting, in the Academy has created interesting works of award-winning exhibitions. Goronovich c 1851 to 1860 he worked in the Orenburg province . In 1853 he participated in the campaign on the AK-Mosque,by this time a large number of watercolors and drawings. In 1855 he wrote the painting "the Rest of the Bukhara caravan in the Kirghiz steppes". A milestone in the creative biography of the artist was a picture of "Exchange yard in Orenburg" (1860). She brought him the title of academician. Neither his biography or the work completely is not studied yet. A significant contribution was made by G. N. Chabrow his dissertation on "Visual sources for the history of Central Asia and Kazakhstan of XVIII - first half of XIX century", where Goronovich in a separate Chapter (manuscript, pp. 174-194).

Shevchenko was familiar with Goronovich in the period of teaching at the Academy of fine arts. In Orenburg the years they are not met. But in letters to friends sent from Novopetrovsk Fort Shevchenko about it mentions. Features is unflattering. "Cooper brought with him to Orenburg certain Goronovich, also my friend at the Academy, and when asked if she is familiar with me, he just said that and did not see me never. There are people in the world!" (From a letter, 1853, to S. S. Gulak-Artemovsky - VI, 84). "As a painter I don't know him but as a person he's a cunt, I know; but God was with him" (letter Of October 1854, to B. Salescom - VI, 104). Shevchenko, very sensitive to hypocrisy, could not be reconciled with expressed by Goranovic indifference to him and his fate.

Still, the fate of academic comrade indifferent he was. Probably not in one letter from Orenburg he read about Goronovich, his deeds and plans. And here: "Goronovich tell me that in Belgium and famous artists to do nothing ... however, bow to him" (letter Of January 1854 to B. Salescom - VI, 92). Here, despite the hostility (or offense), very specific advice, dictated by concern for the fate of man. Indifference to the people Shevchenko suffered.
