The Russian Experiment in Art 1863-1922 (World of Art)

Camilla Gray, Marian Burleigh-Motley


'A book of the most utmost importance to the student of art history' Arts Review


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.


'A major contribution to the study not just of Russian art, but of the 'modern movement' as a whole'
The Guardian

'As for the study of modern Russian art, a new era was opened up … by the publication of Camilla Gray’s pioneering work'
The Times Literary Supplement
