During the first third of the 20th century, Russian art went through a series of dramatic changes, reflecting the political and social upheavals of the country and producing - for a brief, exciting period - a body of avant-garde work whose influence would eventually be felt throughout the rest of the world. Eagerly breaking with the past and absorbing the innovations of Europe, a new generation of young artists developed a host of fresh ideas and original styles, such as Neo-primitivism, Rayonism, Suprematism and Constructivism

Some of the most outstanding exhibitions organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum have been those that have presented the art of the Russian avant-garde. In Amazons of the Avant-Garde: Alexandra Exter, Natalia Goncharova, Liubov Popova, Olga Rozanova, Varvara Stepanova, and Nadezhda Udaltsova the work o six legendary Russian women artists is poignantly explored, offering a refreshing look at this important period of art. Celebrating the vital role that each artist played in the formation of the radical art of the Russian avant-garde, the book looks at the evolution of the Russian painting from the 1900's through the early 1920's. It brings together the brilliant masterpieces of the period, including many that have not been in the West since they were created. The work of these pioneering women artists is expressed as tremendously influential in the world of the Russian avant-garde and important in capturing the Modernist as a whole

In one way or another, all the contributors demonstrate that the artists and writers of the Russian avant-garde attempted to make the word flesh by restructuring human life, for the avant-garde not only generated new configurations of geometries and dissonant phonemes, but also heralded the transformations of the world by seeking to overcome physical, even biological barriers

Moscow & St. Petersburg 1900-1920 : art, life & culture of the Russian silver age by John E Bowlt( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the turn of the 20th century, against the background of the pomp and circumstance of the Imperial court and the rumblings of social unrest and political upheaval, Moscow and St. Petersburg experienced a sudden, brilliant flowering of the visual, literary, and performing arts. Known in Russia as the Silver Age, this cultural renaissance is captured in all of its dazzling originality in this sumptuously illustrated volume." "Much of this new efflorescence was indebted to the Symbolist movement, which fell on fertile soil in the boundless expanse of Mother Russia. The Russian Symbolists lived and created on the edge, which often earned them the sobriquet of Decadent or Degenerate. Yet, as impresario Sergei Diaghilev declared, theirs was not a moral or artistic decline, but a voyage of inner discovery and a refurbishing of a national culture." "Advancing in roughly chronological sequence, Moscow & St. Petersburg 1900-1920 develops themes and propositions that relate closely - but not exclusively - to key social and political developments in Russian history, which were both refracted and affected by painting, poetry, music, and dance. With some 650 illustrations, the book carries a rich repertoire of artistic images and vintage documentary photographs, many of which have not been previously published."--Jacket
The Salon album of Vera Sudeikin-Stravinsky by Vera Stravinsky( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before meeting Igor Stravinsky in 1921 in Paris, Vera Sudeikin-Stravinsky (1888-1982) was already know as the "Muse of the Muses" in what had been the bohemian, intellectual life of St. Petersburg-Petrograd. Hers was the "Silver Age" of Russian culture, when symbolism reigned in the cabarets and the artistic process itself was a form of spontaneous celebration. As the habitues of this world fled the Bolsheviks, Vera, an artist and writer in her own right, managed to preserve their heritage in an extraordinary literary production: an album containing poems, sketches, fragments of music, and other dedications by some of the most influential Russian cultural figures of the day. The Album, which is reproduced here for the first time, is both a record of a cultural diaspora and a monument, in its very content and composition, to Russian culture during the Revolution."--BOOK JACKET

It was edited by Alexander N. Lavrentiev, the artist's grandson, who stresses in his preface that the book illuminates not only Rodchenko's work and artistic environment but also his life. Lavrentiev's notes and his introductions to each chapter form a valuable guide to the professional and personal circumstances that helped to shape Rodchenko's texts."--BOOK JACKET

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sergei Konenkov was one of the twentieth century's most distinguished Russian artists. A celebrated sculptor during the last decades of the Russian Empire, he rose to great prominence in the early Soviet period as well. Although he spent more than twenty years abroad in the United States, his influence never waned. After his return home in 1945, he became the dean of the Soviet art world while remaining a controversial figure to the end of his life. As mentor to several generations of Soviet sculptors, he was renowned for his personal charisma and artistic versatility. This collection of essays, interviews, and personal reminiscences is the first appraisal of his work and life published outside of Russia."--Jacket
