If you watched the recent BBC adaptation of Tolstoy's War and Peace, you might be interested in this recent Daily Mail article about some of the series' visuals, which were apparently inspired by period-appropriate art. According to the article, several of the shots were "painstakingly recreated by Bafta-nominated director Tom Harper, and his costume designer Edward K Gibbon, from paintings dating from Tolstoy's time." They're not enough to convince me to sit through countless hours of English-accented "Russian" people weeping, but the shots are undeniably lovely.
