Portrait of Lili Brochetain by Vladimir Bugrin

Collecting is a magnificent obsession, best not done for silly reasons like making money or becoming famous. You must be possessed by your subject. Collections are hit by the vagaries of fashion and scholarship and supply. In the case of the Lili Brochetain Collection, it was neatly made complete by the one event that seemed totally unlikely when it was started in the 1960's: the collapse of the Soviet Union.
