Masterpieces of Russian Stage Design: 1880-1930
Richly illustrated, this compendium charts one of the most important interludes within the Russian cultural Renaissance of the early 20th century.
Masterpieces of Russian Stage Design: 1880-1930 examines the Lobanov-Rostovsky collection of stage design, in turn outlining the history of modern Russian art: one of the most important interludes within the cultural renaissance of the early twentieth century. Unique in size, scope, and composition, the collection is unequaled; artists include such celebrities as Bakst, Benois, Goncharova, Larionov, Malevich, Popova, Rodchenko, and Tatlin, as well as less familiar names, such as Anisfeld, Lissim, Remisoff, and Soudeikine.
The first of a two-part set, this volume includes over 200 color illustrations of selected designs, an introduction, interview, indices (to artists, theatre companies, and primary productions), a glossary of terms, and a comprehensive bibliography for the visual and performing arts in Russia.
From Neo-Nationalism and Symbolism through Cubo-Futurism and Suprematism to Constructivism and Socialist Realism, Masterpieces of Russian Stage Design guides the reader through the movements, styles, productions and projects that attracted many of Russia's early twentieth-century artists to the stage.
