Tolstoy - a philosopher and political thinker – was born on 9 September 1828 and died at the age 82-year due to pneumonia.

He was a master of realistic fiction and is widely considered one of the greatest novelists of all time. War and Peace (1869) and Anna Karenina (1877) are considered as his masterpieces.

Google has previously used its doodles to honour many such people by dedicating a doodle to them. This time the search engine has showed scenes from various works by the Russian writer in a slideshow.

The first slideshow shows the author at work, busy in writing at a desk with a candle for illumination, and the Google logo on the wall behind.
