Leo Tolstoy (1908)

A Postcard Reproduction announcing a new publication by Dial Press (1980):

PHOTOGRAPHS FOR THE TSAR: The Pioneering Color Photography of Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii, Commissioned by Tsar Nicholas II. Edited with an introduction by Robert H. Allshouse


  1. What an amazing photograph. So much character is etched in this face.

  2. Great photo . . . great writer.

    Dan, did you see "The Last Station" with Christopher Plummer as Tolstoy and Helen Mirren as Sophia? If not, I recommend it.

  3. No, Dee. I haven't seen it, but will put it on my Netflix queue in just a minute....I am a big fan of Mirren.
