Exclusive Group Tour with Dr Rosalind Polly Blakesley: Russia and the Arts exhibition at THE National Portrait Gallery


Pushkin House is delighted to present an exclusive tour of the National Portrait Gallery's Russia and the Arts, with exhibition curator and Russian art historian Dr Rosalind Polly Blakesley. 

Russia and the Arts is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see masterpieces from the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.

The exhibition focuses on the great writers, artists, actors, composers and patrons whose achievements helped develop an extraordinary and rich cultural scene in Russia between 1867 and 1914.

Rosalind Polly Blakesley was educated at the universities of Cambridge and Oxford, and spent a year affiliated to Moscow State University while completing a doctorate on 19th-century Russian painting. She was then a junior research fellow at The Queen's College, Oxford, an affiliated research fellow at the Russian Institute of Art History in Moscow, and held teaching posts at the universities of Newcastle and Kent before returning to Cambridge in 2002. Her current research project is a book on Russian painting from the mid 18th to the late 19th century, for which she held a Leverhulme Research Fellowship from 2009-2010.
