Boris Anrep (1883 - 1969)

Sometimes called "von Anrep" and miscalled "Van Anrep" by Ezra Pound NA26.9:145, he was a Russian aristocrat who became a well known sculptor and mosaic artist. He trained at the Académie Julian in Paris, spent some time in London, where he provided critical support for Roger Fry's second Post-Impressionist show, then returned to Russia, where he wrote poetry and became a friend of the poet Anna Akhmatova. But he left after the revolution and settled in London. He was a well-known figure among the Bloomsbury Group.
