“Illustrations of War & Peace by Igor Karash”

See Leo Tolstoy’s most famous work from a new perspective at the “Illustrations of War & Peace by Igor Karash” exhibit. An award-winning artist, the Azerbaijan-born Karash created the illustrations for an upcoming reprint of the novel. Karash has worked with theater companies in Russia and the United States as well as book publishers around the world. The intersection of theater and illustration informs his work, as does a contemporary understanding of the historic events depicted in War & Peace. The result is a collection of soft illustrations in muted tones.
