September Art Celebration
Jeremy Clarkson, of Top Gear fame, once claimed nobody could name two Russian artists. Passport readers know better of course, thanks to Olga’s erudite and entertaining articles, and more. Here are copies of four of the most famous works and artists, probably in most people’s top ten favourites. Enjoy! As this is a puzzle page, I have mixed up the artists’ and paintings’ names and dates. Nothing too hard to match up. Hint for Jeremy, if you read this: I have included a Kandinsky, so even you should score at least one.
