The Russian Experiment in Art, 1863-1922
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.
