British film director and artist Peter Greenaway auctions paintings in a series called 'Children of Uranium' for a St Petersburg charity supporting treatment of Russian children injured in road accidents
BRITISH FILM DIRECTOR AND ARTIST PETER GREENAWAY‚ SAYS:
"These are part of a programme we call 'The Children of Uranium' and amongst the 'Children of Uranium' I have chosen eight people‚ and what I thought was particularly appropriate‚ that one of them was (Nikita) Kruschev and another is (Mikhail) Gorbachev‚ so it puts a line of two famous Russians‚ if you like‚ in the collection of eight paintings."
