Yasnaya Polyana Gallery 

The exhibition will open on August 3 at 17:00. It will show flower compositions done by employees of our museum’s sector of study and revival of country estate traditions.

Have we ever tried to understand why the letters of the alphabet are written the way they are written? Why are their outlines so extravagant sometimes? Looking at them closely, don’t we see that they remind us of flowers? Of thin stalks and buds, or half-open blossoms? The museum’s chief designer Alexander Kartashov and florists Marina Korabelnikova and Tatiana Frolova give us the opportunity to see the alphabet from this very point of view, and to immerse ourselves in the life of letters, which is a little bit like that of flowers and herbs.
