            Russian painter Olga Suvorova is internationally known for her brilliant reinterpretations of English Pre-Rafaelite art, described by critic Viktoriya Syslova as amazingly modern in their exquisite theatricality. Both exuberant and philosophical in mood, her richly detailed world...s depict people who are somehow familiar to us, even in their extravagant costumes. In this first-person account, accompanied by over 150 images of her colorful paintings, Suvorova describes her background, early influences, and career spanning from the 1970s to today. Mysterious cats, faithful dogs, ravishing birds, and beautiful flowers play supporting roles in her paintings. A revel of life, light, and energy, Suvorova's regal, Renaissance-style art is universally loved because it offers a fresh take on a genre that still has wide popular appeal.
