This landmark series explores the vast riches of Russian art, and features over 400 painters and more than 1,000 paintings in color from museums and collections around the world.
The Classic Years:
Russian culture is a combination of cultures, created at the beginning of the eighteenth century with Peter the Great¹s westernization of Old Russia. Russian society was originally tribal; its art was either primitive and decorative or religious. This episode presents numerous examples of paintings from this unique period in Russian history.
The Impressionist Years:
Impressionism and Symbolism can be complete styles, or they can borrow from each other. Just as Symbolism embraces the period of Russian painting from Ilya Repin to Boris Grigoriev, so too Impressionism is represented through the works of Vasily Polenov, Wassily Kandinsky, and Konstantin Korovin and other Russian painters unknown in the West.
The Years of Art Nouveau:
In the first decade of the twentieth century, Russian artists developed their own version of art nouveau. They also became involved with theatre, set decoration, and book design. Artists such as Alexander Benois, Kazimir Malevich, and Marc Chagall took their art in new directions, and groups emerged with names like the Blue Rose, the Link and the World of Art.
