Very interesting information. Thanks a lot!


They also say in short film that collection was purchased for price equivalent to the price of a good flat in S-Petersburg  :o ;D ;D
And that Georg Iwanow was engraver
Now, let’s hope that after 10 years of speaking that Toy Soldier Museum is about to be opened they will open it at last  ;D
By the way, I doubt seriously that Iwanow came from a military family, he was born before revolution and most likely his ancestors were civil servants or something like that.
Moreover, after studying Iwanow’s life one may suggest that Georg Iwanow was not his real name

This is a working title for a new display in St.Petersburg Suvorov museum,
that was presented just recently

http://www.fontanka.ru/2017/11/13/081/

From a glance at the article:

Series was developped by Stockholm collector (and emigrant) Georgiy Iwanow, antecessor of a Russian officer.
The works endured 30 years.
At the end the figures came to my collector friend Rupert Beyer.
After Rupert's 80s birthday the figures should have been sold at an auction,
but literally thow days before the auction a maezenas appeared and bought the collection for the museum.

By May 2018 the figures will be intergrated in the 60.000 figures collection of St.Petersburg Suvorov museum.
