Boris Anrep: The National Gallery Mosaics
The first works of art encountered by most visitors to the National Gallery are the mosaics at the main entrance, created by the Russian artist Boris Anrep over the period 1926-52. These beautiful mosaics include famous figures of the day, many of whom were close friends of Anrep, such as Virginia Woolf, T S Eliot, Winston Churchill and Greta Garbo.
Boris Anrep: The National Gallery Mosaics provides an account of Anrep's life, describes how the commission for the National Gallery mosaics originated and how the designs developed, and explores the significance of the subjects both as public images for the National Gallery and as private works with personal symbolic meaning for Anrep.
