Russian Art of the Avant-Garde by John E. Bowlt Russian Art of the Avant-Garde, Paperback (February 2017)

During the first third of the 20th century, Russian art went through a series of dramatic changes, reflecting the political and social upheavals of the country. Illustrated with more than 100 photographs and facsimiles, this book helps us in understanding the motivations and struggles that produced an extraordinary, seminal period in Russian art.

Of Peace and War by John E. Bowlt Of Peace and War, Hardback (March 2014)

Features collection of paintings, drawings, and prints that constitutes a panorama of late nineteenth and early twentieth century Russian art, one of the exciting moments of modern cultural history. This title includes curatorial descriptions, biographies, critical essays, and artists statements.

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.
