Moscow and St Petersburg in Russia's Silver Age by John E. Bowlt

Book Description

The history of Russia has seesawed through the centuries between Europe and Asia. In this dichotomy, St. Petersburg looked west and Moscow looked east. Power moved between the two cities; the Tsars were crowned in Moscow yet ruled from St Petersburg. But at the turn of the 20th century, just before Tsarist Russia came tumbling down, both cities experienced a sudden, brilliant flowering of the visual, literary and performing arts. Known in Russia as the Silver Age, this cultural renaissance is captured in all its dazzling originality from the unprecedented synthesis of the arts in the productions of Diaghilev's "Ballets Russes" to Stanislavsky's groundbreaking stagings of Chekov, to Malevich's revolutionary "Black Square" in this impeccably written, sumptuously illustrated volume.

Encyclopedia of Russian Stage Design by John E. Bowlt Encyclopedia of Russian Stage Design, Hardback (July 2013)

Why collect Russian stage designs? Why write about them? These questions are not rhetorical or idly academic. They have real historical, intellectual, and commercial relevance. Answers may vary, but surely a primary response must be that, quite simply, Russian stage designs are immensely pleasing to the eye.
