This exhibition will be the most important display of Russian portraits ever to take place at a British museum, and will be part of an unprecedented cultural exchange with Moscow. Celebrated portraits of key figures from a golden age of the arts in Russia (1867- 1914) will be seen together in Britain for the first time. They come from Moscow’s prestigious State Tretyakov Gallery which will simultaneously display a selection of portraits of famous Britons from the National Portrait Gallery. Dr Maria Mileeva, The Courtauld’s lecturer in Russian Art, will lead a tour of this scintillating exhibtion.
