Informative book about all of the art movements taking place in Russia before, during, and after the avant garde movement. A great read for a Russian class at university and also cheaper than the bookstore,

The best single volume on the Russian Avant Garde movement is 'The Russian Experiment in Art, 1863-1922 (World of Art)', orignally written by Camilla Gray (daughter in law of the composer Sergei Prokofiev), and revised by Dr. Marian Burleigh-Motley. Useful for anyone looking to understand how art is inspired by the historical climate of a period, in this case climaxing in a burst of optimism and energy after the end of Tsarist rule.
Gray provides an excellent introduction to Russian artists who are less well-known in the West only because of the Cold War and the lack of marketing on the part of the Russian museums. If Western museums had owned paintings by these artists, they would have been splashed across every screen saver, coffee mug and calendar. Gray does an admirable job of putting these artists into their fascinating historical context. If anyone is planning a trip to the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow or the Russian States Museum in Petersburg, this book is well worth reading.
