"Impressionism and Post-Impressionism at the Dallas Museum of Art" offers a series of intimate case studies in the history of 19th-century European art. Inspired by a series of public lectures given at the Dallas Museum of Art between 2009 and 2013, the volume comprises twelve beautifully illustrated essays from leading academics and museum specialists. Opening with a new reading of one of Gustave Courbet's great hunting scenes, "The Fox in the Snow", and ending with an exploration of a group of interior scenes by Edouard Vuillard, each essay stands alone as a richly contextualized reading of a single work or group of works by one artist. The authors approach their subjects from a range of methodological perspectives, but all pay close attention to the experience of making and viewing works of art.
The State Tretyakov Gallery is one of the largest museums of Russian art in the country. Its foundation was laid by the Moscow merchant and industrialist Pavel Tretyakov who amassed an excellent collection of national art and donated it to the city of Moscow in 1892. Intended by its founder to be a museum in which Russian artists of all trends were to be represented, the Tretyakov Gallery boasts a unique collection of early Russian icons, masterpieces of 18th- and 19th-century painting and most outstanding works by 20th-century Russian and Soviet artists. Today the State Tretyakov Gallery is a large museum complex with its main building lying on its original site, in quiet Lavrushensky Lane in the very centre of Moscow, and another one located on Krymsky Val and housing best 20th-century artworks. Its branches (House-Museum of Victor Vasnetsov, Memorial Studio of Anna Golubkina, Museum Church of St Nicholas in Tolmachi and others) highlight most important phenomena in the history of Russian art.

The Hermitage Museum in Leningrad is the largest public museum and art gallery in the Soviet Union and one of the important in the world. The initiative was given by Peter the Great and the plans for the first Hermitage building and the Academy of Arts (founded in 1757) was made for the Empress Elizabeth by the architect Vallin de la Mot he as an extension of the famous Winter Palace of Rastrelli. The basis of the collection of Western European paintings was laid by Catherine the Great, one of the voracious collectors of the time. From 1802 pictures by Russian artists began to be added to the collection. In 1837 the Winter Palace was ravaged by fire and the New Hermitage was built by the architect, Leo von Klcnze, 1840—49. In 1849 the Curators drew up the inventory of the collection 4,500 pictures. The collection continued to grow, doubling the number of its pictures between 1910 and 1932. In the 1950s it comprised over 8,000 pictures, 40,000 drawings, and 500,000 engravings. After the Soviet Revolution the collections came into public ownership. Special emphasis is laid upon illustrating the continuity of Russia in history and art, from prehistoric art, consisting chiefly of archaeological material from the Soviet Union, to the present day. About the million and a half people visit the Museum every year and the sections devoted to the "Heroic past of the Russian people" remain the most popular. The album is intended to acquaint readers with the best examples of Russian cul...

About 10 years ago, the State Tretyakov Gallery held a retrospective exhibition of Vladimir Yankilevsky's work. Now the artist lives in Paris. Our main aim in organizing this exhibition was to bring together Yankilevsky's classic works that are part of private and museum collections and the new works created over the last several years. We tried to present the painter's art in all its diversity, displaying reliefs, object-installations, paintings, and drawings.

The aim of this book is to reconstruct the artistic atmosphere in the Soviet Union between the Thaw and the start of Perestroika. The contents, unfortunately, do not cover all the main dramatis personae of these times. One of the reasons is linked to a situation not unusual for the history of art. Art life is usually not adequately reflected in museums, private collections or the press. Political, ideological, human and personal priorities often distort the true roles or correlations of phenomena. Between 1960 and 1985, Soviet museums were unable to acquire all that they considered necessary for the history of art. This applied in particular to the works of unrecognised artists, which only attracted the interest of foreigners or a handful of Russian collectors. It is now extremely difficult to find early works of nonconformist art; scattered across different countries, their current whereabouts are generally unknown.
