Writers’ gardens in Russia

Posted on July 28th, 2011 by Sheila Sim

I am planning a visit to Russia next spring/summer to photograph some of the great Russian writers’ country estates. In advance of my visit I want to do as much research as possible. I would be grateful for any help identifying articles or books, in English or in Russian, relating to teh design of the gardens and grounds at Spasskoye-Lutovinovo (Turgenev), Yasnaya Polyana (Tolstoy) and Melikhovo (Chekhov). More broadly, I’d welcome contact with anyone who has an interest in gardens in Russia.
