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.

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
