RUSSIAN COLLECTION HIGHLIGHTS – AUTHORS AND LITERATURE

Our new Russian collection holds hundreds of paintings and photographs of authors and their works – a perfect complement to Author Pictures at Lebrecht (www.authorpictures.co.uk).

The majority of the authors are Russian and include Alexander Blok, Turgenev, Dostoevsky, Sholokhov, Maxim Gorky, Gogol, Chekhov and Leo Tolstoy. There are also a number of paintings of famous European authors such as Goethe, Heine, Francois de Salignac de la Mothe-FĂ©nelon, Moliere, Guillaume Apollinaire and Diderot. Poets featured in the collection include Anna Akhmatova , Mikhail Lermontov, Paul Verlaine and Adam Mickiewicz.

Famous scenes from novels and illustrations to accompany poems range from Pushkin’s Dubrovsky and The Copper Rider, Emil Zola’s Nana and Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. Vintage photographs of these writers summon up a lost world, from Ivan Bunin with friends in Grasse in France enjoying a good meal to Alexander Kuprin with his wife, daughter and her dolls’ house in 1913.
