Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the original edition of this book was published, John Russell hailed it as "a massive contribution to our knowledge of one of the most fascinating and mysterious episodes in the history of modern art." It still remains the most compact, accurate and reasonably priced survey of sixty years of creative dynamic activity that profoundly influenced the progress of Western art and architecture.

Synopsis:

This volume traces the development of Russian art from 1863 to 1922. It discusses the major movements and artists involved.

Synopsis:

"Not only an indispensable contribution to the study of modern art, but also an illuminating study of modern Russia." --Hilton Kramer,

About the Author

Dr. Marian Burleigh-Motley has had extensive experience of teaching Russian avant-garde art at Princeton University, Hunter College and the Institute of Fine Arts, and New York University.The late Camilla Gray's extraordinary art-historical abilities were immediately recognized with the first publication of this book as The Great Experiment: Russian Art 1863-1922 in 1962. While still in her mid-twenties, she had produced a major and original work on a subject then little known in the West. Translations into German, Italian, and French followed but she herself died tragically young in 1971.
