This exciting exhibition comes to RBBM from the State Pushkin Museum-Reserve in Mikhailovskoye, Russia. Pushkin is arguably Russia's greatest poet and he was an admirer of Burns's work. This series of beautiful works details closely the stunning countryside of the Pushkin family estate and its environs - a must for any lover of Romantic poetry or landscape art.
