Moscow & St. Petersburg 1900-1920


Bowlt, John E.

Cl. New York, 2008

Book ID: 78808

In this elegantly written narrative survey, John E. Bowlt sheds new light on Russias Silver Age, the period of artistic renaissance that flourished as Imperial Russias power waned. Much of the creative energy could be attributed to the Symbolist movement, whose proponents sought to transcend the barriers of bourgeois civility and whose unconventional lifestyles led some critics to label them Decadents and Degenerates.
