“I dreamed about a house on the banks of the Oka River, how we will arrange it, how we will live in it, we will create a big room where there will be a museum, gallery, and library. Nearby there will be a carpentry, admiralty, fisheries and a terrace, and above this will be my studio and your small office. Wonderful dreams can come true.”

“Ostafyevo is close to my heart: we enjoyed all the pleasantness of life there, and a lot of sadness; I spent the middle, if not the best years of my century there, devoted to family, work, and feelings of general benevolence, in the repose of rebellious passion”

From the memoirs of Peter Vyazemsky
