monument to Chekhov

In Moscow, a monument to Chekhov was erected only in 1998, and this event was timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Moscow Art Theater, named after the famous writer. The author of this sculpture was artist Mikhail Anikushin. He portrayed Chekhov as his contemporaries remembered him: a gentle intelligent man whose thin figure attracts attention with its simplicity and some shyness.

The author of the monument managed to complete it, but did not live to see the installation, so there is an opinion that the place where Anton Pavlovich should stand was chosen by Mayor Luzhkov himself. By the way, the mayor's office also allocated funds for the creation of the sculpture — a total of about 5,000,000 rubles were required.
