How fickle is memory, how impermanent. When I started this blog barely a month ago, I had completely forgotten that I had not only blogged (briefly) once before about Russian art but also mentioned Zinaida Serebriakova. This was over three years ago, when Marcel Theroux’s documentary Oligart: The Great Russian Art Boom on Russian oligarchs buying up the country’s art was shown. At the time, Serebriakova was gaining serious attention and achieving eye-watering prices. But a month ago, it was as though I was rediscovering her anew. How fickle indeed is memory.
