One of the most splendid sets showcasing the very best art of the USSR (1917-1991), The Art of the Soviet Union brings together exemplary paintings and sculpture by leading artists of the era. These riches unfold across four marvelous volumes – Landscapes, Still Lifes, Nudes, and Portraits – that pair fantastic images and exceptional text to retell the story of one of the most dynamic epochs of Russian art history.
Organized in chronological order, these thematic volumes allow the reader to witness the evolution of art of the Soviet republics in response to local and international trends and innovations. The incredible level of detail brings back to life many works that have remained in relative obscurity in small or provincial collections. Individually, each volume offers a comprehensive and compelling account of essential genres, but taken in sum this four-volume set reveals a striking history of Soviet artistic brilliance.
