Last love of Vladimir Mayakovsky Tatiana Yakovleva
One of the most touching stories of Mayakovsky’s life happened to him in Paris when he fell in love with Tatiana Yakovleva. Between them there could be nothing in common. A Russian emigre, chiseled and refined, brought up on Pushkin and Tyutchev, did not take a word from the chopped, hard, ragged poems of a fashionable Soviet poet, an “icebreaker” from the Land of Soviets.
She did not take any of his words at all, even in real life. Fierce, frantic, going ahead, living on his last breath, he frightened her with his unrestrained passion. She was not touched neither by his dog devotion, nor his fame. Her heart remained indifferent. And Mayakovsky left for Moscow alone.

From this instantly flared and not held love, with him remained a secret grief, and with us – a magical poem “Letter to Tatyana Yakovleva” with the words: “I’ll take you one or two with Paris!”

Actress Margarita. 1909. Million Scarlet Roses from Niko Pirosmani

Million Scarlet Roses from Niko Pirosmani. Georgian artist Niko Pirosmani (5 May 1862 – April 9, 1918) was a primitivist, one of those artists about whom people far from understanding art, say: “I would have painted not worse than that”. But only a blind man can not see the whole poignancy of the artist’s painting. Behind the apparent naivete of painted on canvas animals and holiday feasts are hidden deep feelings – pain through the joy and pleasure through pain. And it becomes more than obvious if you know a little about the life of Niko Pirosmani. When asked about the age, Niko replied with a shy smile: “How should I know?” Time for him went his own way and did not correlate with boring numbers on the calendar.
