THE TOLSTOYS IN THE 21ST CENTURY: OLEG TOLSTOY. Rosamund Bartlett et al. Merrell Publishers Ltd, London, 2015. 192 pp. with 95 ills. (93 col.). 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9781858946405 In English.
Publisher's description: The Tolstoys in the 21st Century is a photographic portrayal of the modern day Tolstoy dynasty, as photographed by Oleg Tolstoy-Miloslavsky, a relation of one of the world's greatest writers. Tolstoy-Miloslavsky, who trained in London and whose work has been exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery amongst other renowned venues, wanted to pay homage to his illustrious forefather. When the far-flung clan gathered at Tolstoy's country estate for a family reunion, Tolstoy-Miloslavsky photographed his relatives in a room that contained Tolstoy's personal effects. The result is a stunning collection of photographic portraits that are both intimate yet engaging, as they capture the diaspora of a family whose name is synonymous with culture, creativity and the proud heritage of Russian literature. This book combines living history with cultural history, with results that will surprise the eye and delight the imagination, with forewords by Edward Lucie-Smith, Rosamund Bartlett and Yekaterina Tolstaya.
