Natacha & Svetie

Natacha Rambova & Svetoslav Roerich were engaged for three years before he left her to return to India. I was fortunate in discovering more about their love story when I completed Michael Morris' fine addendum to Madam Valentino, Beyond Valentino. Through Michael's contacts I was put in touch with the Russian Roerich Foundation and an historian in Moscow working on Svetoslav's history who generously shared a great deal. Many surprises are consequently revealed in Beyond Valentino. What a fabulously beautiful couple, but more heart break for her.
