Choice (American Library Association): Humanities; Masterpieces of Soviet painting and sculpture

Soviet painting and sculpture" encompasses a vast area, and the scope of this book is considerably narrower than the title suggests. In fact the volume is a reflection of recent interest in forms of realism in Soviet art. (A number of the artists surveyed have had active careers in the post-Soviet period.) Lavishly printed with copious illustrations, the book was produced with the assistance of the Art Russe Foundation, which is supported by Russian entrepreneur Andrei Filatov.
