Item description for The Four Seasons: Landscape in Russian Painting by Curators at The State Russian Museum...
Russian landscape painting is a unique phenomenon in the history of art. Its long path from the eighteenth century to today is scattered with brilliant achievements and a dazzling array of names and works, all reproduced in this publication. The art of the Russian landscapists offers an original reflection of all the main stages in the history of European painting - Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, Symbolism and postmodernism in the twentieth century. As in poetry and music, the four seasons became, in painting, a way of exploring the secret meaning of nature.
