Once the Winter Palace of the Russian Tsars, the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg has seen no shortage of treasures in the last three centuries. Now, pieces belonging to one of its most influential former residents, Serene Prince Grigory Alexandrovich Potemkin of Taurida, are the subject of a new exhibition, 280 years after his birth. The lover of Catherine the Great, Potemkin was known as much for his military cunning as for his patronage of the arts, with the duo dubbed by Simon Sebag Montefiore as the Antony and Cleopatra of the age. Including everything from portraits to porcelain, a Turkish tent to a musical chandelier, it provides a rare insight into life at court during one of the most interesting times in Russian history.

In the interview, January cover star Nicole Kidman, dressed in a satin and velvet cape by Giorgio Armani, talks about the loss of her father, Dr Antony Kidman, the scientist who died in 2014; a death that she still feels keenly.

Because they need to know that they’re safe, that their mother isn’t going to fall apart.’ She adds, ‘Inside? I was beyond shattered.
