The exhibition includes works by nineteen modern Greek artists. Each of them has his own technique and manner of painting, and his own understanding of the world, but they are all united by their interest in Tolstoy‘s heritage and love for heroines of Russian classical literature. Specially for this exhibition, the artists were rereading Leo Tolstoy‘s works for two years, and later were able to present their original interpretations of female images of the novels Family Happiness, War and Peace, Anna Karenina, and Resurrection.
