Drawings of the Poet: Joseph Brodsky’s Unknown Legacy

Tue, Oct 20, 2020, 4:30 pm

Abstract: The title of this talk pays tribute to Abram Efros’s seminal study, Risunki poeta (Academia, 1933). However, in contrast to Pushkin's graphic art, Brodsky’s drawings are virtually unknown and still unpublished: for the first time his select sketches have been briefly exhibited in 2010, in St. Petersburg’s Russian National Library.
