"I welcome the new book, My Hermitage: How The Hermitage Survived Tsars, Wars and Revolutions to Become the Greatest Museum in the World, for its erudition, passion and lively history. . . I hope The Hermitage is on your list of ‘must-see’ museums. If so, this is the essential reference that will enrich the hours and days of exploration."
"The story of the palatial museum's 250-year history, which is as rich in adventure as it is in art, is extravagantly revealed."
-THE SOCIETY DIARIES
"The visuals of My Hermitage continually remind you of the encyclopedic collection housed there. This beautiful, lavishly illustrated book hints at the opulence of the setting of that collection as well . . . For some, these reminders of the tsarist past jar with their decadence, but I saw them as the most appropriate setting for the art — a literal, almost limitless palace of human imagination."
