Statue / monument of Alexander Pushkin in Washington DC by Sculptor Alexander and Igor Bourganov  Subject: Alexander Pushkin
 Year: 1999
 Sculptor: Alexander and Igor Bourganov

( H Street & 20th )

Pushkin (1799-1837) is considered by many to be Russia's greatest poet. He is most famous for his tragedy Boris Godunov and his verse novel Eugene Onegin. He married late (1831) and died young, in a duel with his wife's brother-in-law.

This statue was raised on the campus of George Washington University in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of Pushkin's birth. It was funded by the American-Russian Cultural Cooperation Foundation.
