Commemorative plaque to Robert Rozhdestvensky
Moscow, Tverskaya St., 9
Inaugurated on June 20, 2012 in honour of the eightieth anniversary of poet’s birth. Robert Rozhdestvensky lived in the house at Tverskaya, 9 for 22 years.
The composition of George Frangulyan is shaped as sheets of a poetic notepad, with the poet himself looking from its pages, with an inevitable cigarette in his hand.
“The very image of Robert Rozhdestvensky dictated the decision. It's not too complicated. You see it and you do it”, explained sculptor George Frangulyan.
Poet’s relatives asked the sculptor to make the plaque. “He's a great sculptor, an outstanding artist. And yet I like him being a very nice person. And this symbiosis made me opt for it. We are very pleased with the result, and I think it will be a decoration”, Yekaterina Rozhdestvenskaya, Robert Rozhdestvensky’s daughter expressed her conviction.
