The Boy who Would be Tsar: The Art of Prince Andrew Romanoff

Gallery 16 Editions, 2006 - 69 Seiten
Cultural Writing. Art. Andrew Romanoff is the grandnephew of the late Tsar Nicholas Romanoff. Had the Bolshevik Revolution not intervened, Andrew himself was in line to become Tsar of Russia. Instead, he grew up in exile on the grounds at Windsor Castle in London. Prince Andrew, now 85 years old, chronicles his remarkable childhood in THE BOY WHO WOULD BE TSAR, THE ART OF PRINCE ANDREW ROMANOFF. Prince Andrew's drawings of daily life are executed on Shrinky Dink material, a plastic which shrinks when heated in the oven. His decidedly original works are rooted in the realm of Folk Art. He uses these drawings to illustrate the story of his childhood at Frogmore Cottage, a thirty six room mansion on the grounds of Windsor. There, Andrew was raised with his parents and grandmother Grand Duchess Xenia.
