Item description for Portraiture in Russia by Yevgenia Petrova...
The theme of this publication is Russian portraits over the past hundred years, painting a vivid picture of every period in the 20th century. The more than 460 illustrations were all taken from the collection of the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, home to the world's largest collection of Russian art. The various movements and styles in which 20th century artists worked are widely reflected in portraiture. Those whose lives are indelibly linked to the events of the past century are depicted in realistic and avant-garde forms, constituting an unbroken chain of Russian history in faces.

Reviews - What do customers think about Portraiture in Russia?
Don't judge the book by the cover! Jul 26, 2006
If you are a fan of Classical and realistic works, this book is not for you. Don't be fooled by the cover which is a realist portrait. You can only find 10 or less works done by the realist artists. But those who are into Modernism will find this book amazing, they'll be satisfied.
