About this Item

Union of Russian Artists. Exhibition of Paintings. [Vystavka Kartin. "Soyuz Russkih Khudozhnikov."] Moscow: K.A. Fisher 1905. No text; many b&w ills. on 32p, printed on rectos only. Overall poor to fair, but a scarce survival nonetheless. Front wrapper detached; lacks rear wrapper. A few tears to margins and guardsheets, not affecting content. ** The Union of Russian Artists was a Moscow-based group of painters and sculptors that separated themselves from Diaghilev's St. Petersburg-based Mir Iskusstva (World of Art). The works here are chiefly landscapes, interiors, and figures. The front cover and title page were designed by Mikhail Vrubel. The cover is green, printed in black and gold. The title page is a wonderful dense design of the artists' names, printed in black and red on tan paper. It is almost identical to Vrubel's poster for the 1901 exhibition of The 36 (the Union's original name), which is reproduced in The Twilight of the Tsars: Russian Art at the Turn of the Century (Hayward Gallery, 1991).

Store Description

I¿ve been selling and appraising GOOD HORSE AND ART BOOKS since 1973, first by mail as Blue Rider Books, and since 1983 in the full-time open shop that I share with H.L. Mendelsohn (whose books are also on ABE). We¿d love to have you visit the second-oldest secondhand bookshop in Cambridge, just outside Harvard Square (open Tuesday-Saturday noon to 6, or by appointment). If you can¿t make it, go to www.bledsoebooks.com for many (but by no means all) of my books. My inventory of new, used, and rare equestrian books is one of the largest in the U.S., with special depth in Paul Brown, 19th-century books, dressage, and ephemera (paper items). I love to seek out the obscure, the uncommon, and the overlooked. Harvey Mendelsohn and I also offer a room full of out-of-print scholarly titles on the fine and applied arts, especially art history, architecture and planning, book arts, gardens, 20th-century ceramics, photography, and exhibition catalogues. And you¿ll also find some children¿s books, cookbooks, titles in cultural history and philosophy, and other general books. Many of our books never make it online, so if you¿re looking for items you don¿t see here, please phone or e-mail. Then maybe you, too, like hundreds of happy customers over the years, will say, ¿You have it? YOU¿VE MADE MY DAY!¿
