Providing an overview of the key artistic developments and connections in the lands of the Romanov and Habsburg empires, as well as their neighbouring and successor states, this book argues, that an appreciation of East European art should lead us to a fresh definition of 'European' art as a whole.

Description

Details

The arts that flourished between the Arctic Ocean and the Black Sea and between Austria and Russian Alaska from the seventeenth to the twentieth century are some of the most potent in history. Yet they, and their cultural context, remain little known. "East European Art" addresses this by providing a sweeping view of key artistic developments and connections in the lands of the Romanov and Habsburg empires as well as their neighbouring and successor states. And it argues that a greater appreciation of East European art will lead us to a much-needed fresh definition of 'European' art as a whole.
