Impressionism in Russia : Dawn of the Avant-Garde, Hardback Book

Impressionism in Russia : Dawn of the Avant-Garde Hardback

Edited by The Museum Barberini, The Museum Frieder Burda

Hardback

Description

In the late 19th century, numerous Russian artists found inspiration in the style of French Impressionist painters.

Often, a journey to Paris acted as a catalyst for their burgeoning interest in the movement.

They developed a preference for working en plein air and aimed to capture transitory effects through a spontaneous and free handling of the brush.

Many leading painters of the later Russian avant-garde arrived at their individual styles due to studying the Impressionist use of light.

This lavishly illustrated volume explores the many-layered ways French Impressionism influenced the evolution of Russian art from the 1880s to the 1920s, including the work of painters as diverse as Ilya Repin, Valentin Serov, Konstantin Korovin, Natalia Goncharova, and Kazimir Malevich.

Essays by many of the leading scholars in the field provide rich new insights into one of the most intriguing chapters of Russian modernism.
