Exhibition From Tolstoy to Tolstoy. Writer, Fashion and Style

How often did Leo Tolstoy walk barefoot (as in his famous portrait by Ilya Repin)? When did Anton Chekhov purchase his famous pince-nez, bowtie and walking cane? Were the Silver Age poets always dainty?

      The exposition will not only answer these and many other questions. It will tell about the attitude of the outstanding men of letters to fashion and style, as well as dispel some myths about their appearance.

      The Lyuboshchinsky-Vernadsky Mansion, Moscow, is housing an exhibition illustrating how famous Russian writers of different epochs used to dress. The heroes of the project are Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Ivan Turgenev, Anton Chekhov, Ivan Bunin, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Alexander Blok, Anna Akhmatova, Maxim Gorky, Marina Tsvetaeva, Alexey Tolstoy, and others. Visitors will see their paraphernalia and manuscripts from the collections of 15 Russian museums.
The project includes lectures, curatorial shows and round tables with the participation of the historians of literature and fashion.
