About the Book

As Modest Moussorgsky composed “Pictures at an Exhibition

for the piano - describing musically the pictures that were being

viewed - so has the author written “Portraits in a Gallery ”. Many

visitors to a museum pass by the pictures on the wall rather hastily

without paying much attention to the details of the paintings or

to the lives of those who have sat for their portraits. The book

describes the lives of the subjects of some of these portraits,

people with everyday problems – just like you – displaying many

different emotions and behavior patterns, some with nerves of

steel and others with hearts of lions. Each had to contend with

life’s forces which were beyond their control.
