Anna is a true art lover & teacher. Guided our group of 4 cruisers through Staff Bldg & Hermitage. In a short time, she gave a course in Impressionism - offering insights into lives of artists, forms & subjects, relations to social & art developments. On short notice, Anna got wheelchair access with staff. Expertly navigated way to key works through Hermitage, contextualizing many pieces with ease. Equally at adept at Russian & art history, life of the Palace & Museum collection. DELIGHTFUL.
