Richer then the Romanovs : The Art of Prince Nikolai Borisovich Yusopov

Statesman, diplomat, art patron and connoisseur, the Prince was the director of the Hermitage. Buying his first books, drawings and paintings in the Netherlands, he soon amassed one of the most comprehensive collections of paintings as well as of snuff boxes, walking sticks, art from the Far East, tapestries, carved ivories, and gems. Richer than royalty, discover the man and his legacy.

Lecturer Marie-Anne Mancio trained as an artist before gaining a PhD in Art and Critical Theory from the University of Sussex. She has lectured in art history for the City Lit, Tate Modern, the Course, Art in London, London Art Salon, Dulwich Picture Gallery, the Nth Degree Club and many private art societies; also runs art history study tours abroad.
