Catherine the Great, and her priceless art collection. Over
four thousand initial gifts to what has become one of THE
museums of the world.
May I quote, from an earlier review:
"Geraldine Norman has an enviable educational and professional
background to permit her to write this book and consequently,
it ranks as one of the best." Treasures of Catherine the Great:
from the Hermitage Museum of St. Petersburg is the first full
history to study.
Thank you Geraldine Norman, author and Mikhail Piotrovski,
Director of the Hermitage.
