Guardians of Russian Art Museums. by Andy Freeberg (via my modern met)
“These women who appear to be guarding artwork in museums aren’t actually employed to be protecting the history that surrounds them. In fact, these Russian women simply like to sit and guard the collections in art galleries because they enjoy being surrounded by Russia’s great art….
It’s interesting to imagine what each woman’s personality must be like based on which artwork she chooses. ”
