Russian Autocracy from Ivan the Terrible to Putin – Wende Museum

Anne Bobroff-Hajal is an artist with a PhD in Russian history. Her monumental 14 foot wide multi-panel artwork Darling Godsonny: Ivan the Terrible Advises the Infant Stalin, currently on display at the Wende Museum, contains over a thousand portraits of Russians ranging from serfs to princes and from Soviet nomenclatura to gulag inmates, each painted using tiny brushes and magnifying glasses. Their stories are narrated in song by satirical characters.

This Sunday, March 17 at 2 p.m., she will join us at the museum for a discussion on 500 years of Russian autocracy, spanning ideological and dynastic changes.
