Categories: Celebrities | History

This collection contains very different women: actresses and college girls, revolutionaries and aristocrats, ballerinas and housewives. But all of them are united by beauty, forever captured thanks to the art of photography and lovingly restored and multiplied by a talented master of color painting.

The artist Olga Shirnina revives the lost palette of life in old photographs. The old pictures lovingly painted by her seem to get a second life, the aristocratic faces of thoroughbred beauties of the times of the Russian Empire acquire blood and flesh, become more modern and closer.
