Book launch: Dmitry Oparin, Bolshaya Sadovaya, 10. The History of a Moscow Building Told by its Tenants

The Third GARAGE ART BOOK FAIR
19 May 2018
20:00–21:30

DESCRIPTION

The book spans over a hundred years of history of the famous building on Bolshaya Sadovaya, 10 in Moscow.

At various times, this was the home of Mikhail Bulgakov, Pyotr Konchalovsky, Vasily Surikov, Georgy Yakulov, Nikolay Ryabushinsky, and a place visited by Sergey Esenin, Fanny Kaplan, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Isadora Duncan, Anatoly Marienhof, Anatoly Lunacharsky, Andrei Bely, Matiros Saryan, Osar Rabin, and many other notable historical figures. However, the book focuses on the lives of less popular personalities who lived in the same house—bankers of the prerevolutionary period, lawyers, doctors, Soviet printers, literary authors, tailors, militia officers, and embassy workers. The history of the building is revealed through the prism of its tenants’ memoirs, family collections of photographs, and archival records.
