- Additional Notes
- Sensitive Material: In this image, Mikhail Afanas’evich Bulgakov and his friends and family celebrate the New Year during a carnival party. Part of the tradition was to dress in costume. Mikhail Afanas’evich Bulgakov and a friend, Boris Bogdanov, are wearing blackface. One of Bulgakov’s sisters is dressed as an Asian woman. These costumes, which perpetuate stereotypes and are racially insensitive, were worn as part of the cultural fascination with the so-called “exotic."
