Marina Tsvetaeva wrote this autobiographical account during exile in France and published it in Russian, in 1933, in different Paris magazines; three years later, in 1936, trying to get closer to French readers, he reworked his childhood memories in French, a set of five chapters which he named My father and his museum and which, however, never got published in lifetime. In both versions gathered in this volume, the author offers an emotional and lyrical evocation of the figure of her father, Ivan Tsvetaev, a university professor who dedicated his life to the founding of the Moscow Museum of Fine Arts, the current Pushkin Museum. Often laconic and fragmentary but with an extraordinary poetic force, this wonderful text, vibrant and moving, brings us closer to the intimacy of an inimitable poet than few others.
