Anna Karenina

Review :

In lieu of a proper review of my favorite book, and in addition to the remark that it would be more aptly named Konstantin Levin, I present to you the characters of Anna Karenina in a series of portraits painted by dead white men.


Anna Karenina (Lady Agnew of Lochnaw by John Singer Sargent)



Alexei Karenin (Portrait of Edouard Manet by Henri Fantin-Latour)



Alexei Vronsky (Study of a Young Man by John Singer Sargent)



Konstantin Levin (Robert Louis Stevenson and His Wife by John Singer Sargent



Kitty Scherbatsky (Portrait of Julie Manet by Pierre-Auguste Renoir)



Stepan Arkadyick Oblonsky (Monsieur Charpentier by Pierre-Auguste Renoir)



Dolly Oblonsky (The Marchioness of Downshire by John William Waterhouse)



An old muzhik (Tolstoy Plowing by Ilya Yefimovich Repin; yes, that is really a painting of Tolstoy himself, and he looks like what I imagine an old muzhik to look like.)
