Five unforgettable years at the Leningrad Pedagogical Institute named Herzen did not leave me photographs of the “educational process”… But I want and need to tell about my teachers.

Lecturer of Foreign Art History Mikhail German (1933) – son of the famous writer, brother of the outstanding
filmmaker, author of more than 40 books. He always seemed to me an aristocrat, who came to us from
the last century: a discreet, elegant, with unfailing walking stick

Head of chair of painting Leonid Kabachek (1924-2002) – Honoured artist and professor. He was considered
