Merla Zellerbach of the Nob Hill Gazette had a chat with Tatiana Sorokko recently about her husband’s sexy new status as a Chevalier:
Russian-born and Grant Ave. gallery owner Serge Sorokko is sporting a small green insignia in his lapel that designates him a Chevalier des Artes et Lettres from the government of France.
The knighthood recognizes individuals who’ve made outstanding contributions to the arts. (Other local recipients include Danielle Steel and retired de Young Director Harry Parker.)
When asked if the award has changed their relationship, Serge’s wife Tatiana replied, “In olden times, people were very subservient to a Chevalier. But my husband’s going to need quite a few more honors for me to bow to him!“
