    PS for the English speaking members, there is the man's biography by Simon Sebag Montefiore "The Life of Potemkin", quite a read.

    For the clothes and the medals, the picture was certainly the source Kev.

    But for the face it was probably this picture that shows him a little older and less embellished ...:

    A nice piece indeed. But why is his name always translitterated into the Roman alphabet as "Potemkin", when the Cyrllic letters clearly show that it is Potyomkin? That umlaut makes a lot of difference!

    Most Russian names, both of people and places, are wrongly transliterated AND mispronounced on radio and television in the western world, even nowadays with all internet and other facilities; accents and stress are put at random or at the whim of the local presenter. Quite a shame really, for Russian is a beautiful and very melodious language, but who would recognize "PatYOMkin"? The slapdash way of using correct language nowadays irritates me beyond measure, turning the happy polyglot in a grumpy old man once too often!

    Sorry for my rambling, must be the confinement getting on my happy disposition:(

    You are absolutely right!

    I also cringe every time someone says "Odessa".

    It is spoken "Adjessa"...

    Funny (off-topic) story similar to that...

    Many jobs ago (I'm a software engineer in Silicon Valley, this was when I was going from start-up to start-up and changing jobs a lot) I had a Russian co-worker named Lena (Лена) and a CEO who just could not pronounce her name correctly. One day at a lunch outing, I was sitting across from him and her and she was trying to correct him on the pronunciation... he kept saying "LEE-nah" and she was trying to get him to say "Lyeh-nah". I had been studying Russian for about a year or so at this point, so I tried to help. For a good 4-5 minutes, I would have him carefully say "YEH-nah" over and over, then try to put the "L" in front of it. But every time he introduced the "L" it went right back to "LEE-nah".

    Then the food arrived, and she and I gave up :).

    ...and just to be on-topic: I might actually like this one better than the Kutusov bust you introduced recently! Both are truly excellent! Отлычно!
