This is the first comprehensives survey by an art historian, in English, of one of the most popular schools of art in nineteenth-century Europe. It is essential to anybody interested in issues of nineteenth-century art or Russian culture. This book offers a rich panorama of Russian society at all levels, and addresses topical intellectual issues surrounding Russian thought. Fascination for Russian visual cultures is reflected in publications and through ever-growing auction house sales and private galleries.

Review:

The book is well written. It reads easily, and this in itself might help to popularize the Wanderers. It can certainly be recommended as a readable popular survey or introduction. --Elizabeth Kridi Valkenier, Columbia University

David Jackson successfully puts 19th-century Russian art into a pan-European perspective. The elusive qualities which this author has captuted are perhaps best summed up in a quotation in which Alexandre Benois defines the unique talent of landscapist, Isaak Kevitan, whom he considers to be "neither a Barbizon, a Dutchman, nor an Impressionist, nor (is he) all of these put together. Levitan is a Russian artist." David Jackson presents his findings with colourful anecdotal evidence. --Ann Kodicek, Art Newspaper
