Displaced by the October 1917 Revolution, Russian Alia Aivazovsky stored his family reminiscences in drawers in European capitals as he wandered in search of a new home. Settling in London at the beginning of the Second World War, fragments of his notes survived offering a fresh insight into the life of his grandfather, marine painter Ivan Aivazovsky, fĂȘted across Europe.
